|Are there any roses you lust after but they aren't available in your country, won't grow in your zone, are no longer being propagated or are just really hard to get your hands on for whatever reason? I have several. I agonize over what roses to get because my space is super limited and constantly fall in love with roses I can't have.
I didn't know if it would be okay to post photos that aren't mine even with credit given so I've settled for helpmefind links.
Please share your unattainable roses!
Priyatama (look at the other photos, the initial one isn't that great)
Climbing Black tea
I hate pinterest btw. I come across a picture of a rose I like and find it's an unlabled, uncredited pintrest pic. Any guesses on this?

|There are many,for the most part roses that aren't available here in Europe. Number one: Kordes' Quicksilver. This one particularly sticks in my craw because it was bred in Germany-I think they don't offer it here because, supposedly, it doesn't do well in the "cold" German climate. But it gets such high praise from American gardeners, even those in cold zones, and in general I'm pretty sure that Germany's climate is much milder than that of the northern USA!!! There are so, so few climbers of that colour-basically, I can't think of any.
Then, there are some Paul Barden roses: first and foremost, Mel's Heritage. Siren's Keep.
The odd-ball Lavender Crush,Violet's Pride...
Doubtless I'll think of others...

|I looked up lavender crush. Very pretty! I think I'm mostly going to end up with climbing roses. I don't have a lot of room for beds. I'd like some new ones in the front yard but my husband is horrified by the thought of digging up his beautiful grass. I'd love a dark purple climber, something the shade of Ebb Tide but but I like really full roses (unless they're yellow).|
