I can't wait to see more information on some of the new roses. Planting own root roses that have performed well for others in zone 5/6 or colder is working well for me. I keep repeating my mantra "no more dead sticks" and remembering how happy I was this spring when my roses survived the winter.
Koko Loco was the first new one to catch my eye. Dark Knight and Rouge Royale (also called Caruso, a romantica) from Meidiland are also interesting. I assume Tequila Supreme is different from the three Meidiland roses already named Tequila. While I am complaining about names. Wouldn't you rather grow a rose called Lord Byron than Polka? Yes they are the same rose, but a romantica rose called polka? Non.
More iceberg sports? Lace Cascade, Pink Iceberg
And a fragrant Radler rose on its own root with a very full floral form. Yippee!!! Milwaukee's Calatrava Shrub Rose
Does anyone grow Persian Yellow Antique Foetida Rose? How unpleasant is the unpleasant scent?
They didn't flag colorific or daybreaker as new, but I haven't seen them before. Or perhaps don't remember seeing them. They look nice in California, especially in California Sue's photos like this one:
FYI, I really like Fire Meidiland, a groundcover rose. It is by my strawberries in a no spray garden bed and still has healthy foilage. The canes are longer than I thought (6'+) but I am not complaining. It is a scarlet red. It seems like Ruby Meilland is similar rose but possibly taller and a truer red.
