In contrast to many other locations, Sebastopol has had pleasant June weather and will continue to have pleasant weather in July. Weather forecasts for the coming week predict daytime highs in the 70s, dipping down to the low 50s at night. This could save our gardens in spite of the severe drought we're experiencing. No rain since April and none expected until November.

This month's thumbnail photo was chosen with an eye to other locations. 'Heat Wave' is one of Herbert Swim's floribundas from the 1950s.

Most of my roses are on a break right now mainly because they haven't been deadheaded yet. Jap beetles have arrived and are feasting on my blackberries. So much for getting a year I can eat my own berries. Sighing! I have no plans on making my roses look good for awhile due to the beetles since I want to limit their food.

Thankfully the rain kept them off my roses yesterday. I need to deadhead a few today. Most of mine are between bloomings at the moment, but some are just now starting on their first, and some have yet to produce buds.

The first Mutabilis bloom finished opening, and was joined by the second. I already love this rose. I can't wait to see it fully grown and covered in blooms.

I love Pernetianas.
I also I agree . They ought to be one of the contemporary breeding goals...to introduce more of the idea underlying pernetiana colour blends. I would love to see that happen with David Austin s breeding lines whoever might want to pick the challenge. Because of the absence of David Austin himself, who was the real breeder, the continuity in breeding will have to be picked by others elsewhere. The remainder sounds to me like the buisiness side that lingers, benefitting on past glories... Hilarious!

Thank you Aerith & Arturo for your kind words. Thank you to everyone for all your acorns and thumbs up's. I appreciate the time you took to view them. I try hard to demonstrate the uniqueness of each individual flower. Aren't we fortunate to be able to add these beautiful flowers to our home gardens thanks to past and present hybridizers?

About Pernetiana's: Because of the cold weather on Long Island I mound up my roses (esp. the pernetiana's) with about 8" of top soil followed by a thick layer of cedar mulch.

Here are some blooming this week.

Lady of Shalott is happy here and really a blooming machine. The only problem is that it wants a bigger spot I don't have. Whistling

Tropicana is prone to BS, but it grows fast. The second year it's about 5'6". It's a pity I can't detect any scent.

These minis below are from Mountain Valley Growers, which is the first time I ordered from. Each of them came in a 3-inch pot, the smallest bands I've ever bought. Although they're tiny, the root balls develop very well.

Annie,
Both of them are about 2' tall. My own-root Tamora gets some BS in part shade but still keeps most leaves. It is a blooming machine. This picture is its second flush.

My grafted Lion's rose is new this year. I love its apricot shade while opening, but it soon faded to white in hot dry summer. Very healthy in my climate.

Thank you Aerith! I love the pictures of Lions Rose at RVR, but they don't have reviews on their roses. I have been eyeing Tamora and Heritage.

ZuZu, I wanted to thank you so much for adding comments to rose plant pages, I so appreciated it! It helps me decide, especially when you have such a unique collection.

Crazy Love is in full bloom this afternoon. I ordered it from Heirloom in the middle of last summer, so it's just about a year old in my garden, and doing really well.

The last of my bare root roses, David Austin's Grace, has arrived just as my garden was flooded by two inches of rain overnight. The lovely hole I had dug in preparation is full of water now so I will wait a day or so before I plant her. One thing I can't figure out is if this rose will need some support or whether she will be ok without it. I have a small decorative obelisk as well as a support frame similar to a tomato cage that I can use and I would like to have any required support in place at the time of planting. Does anyone know if support is needed for Grace? How tall and wide does she get?
