Aren't they pretty! Porkpal's right. The petals on Fimbriata are really special. They look like they've been trimmed with pinking shears.

Your Polareis is so pink this year!

Zuzu I think the pink is because our weather has been more cool. It fades to white.
Fimbriata is cute isn't it? Lovey dubby

You have to wait even longer than I do for blooms. They are lovely. My peonies just finished blooming and are in their pots to move! My big one broke a bit while I was digging it out. Two very excited friends got starter pink peonies for their gardens.

I like the Harrison Yellow. Does it have problems with blackspot?

My Austin yelllows are very vulnerable to blackspot. Julia Child is less vulnerable, but still needs spray and systemic to have nice leaves.

Andi you keep Peonies in pots?! I didn't know you could do that!
Harrison's Yellow is very disease resistant but a once bloomer.
I've pretty much shovel pruned all my roses that get a lot of BS.
I don't mind if they get it late in the season but won't tolerate it early in the season.
That's why I grow a lot of Rugosas. Pretty much disease free roses with no spraying.

I too have a lot of pink roses as it is the most common color among the Old Garden Roses.

I really like that Centifolia "Village Maid" - frowsy petals and bi-colored too!

I love the bi-color Centifolia too!
Pink = hardy.
Only large flowering repeat climber for me is Louise Odier (see below)

Look at how tiny Fimbrita's blossoms are compared to the stand sized Rugosa blossoms next to it.

Delicata nice for a not so big Rugosa.


Don't plant by back door.
This is trimmed back.

I'm enchanted with my bi-color Centifolia this year.
Obviously it liked our abundant spring rains and is covered with buds and blossoms this year! Lovey dubby

When I open the back door Lillian Gibson slaps me in the face and Constance Spry beckons me to come take a whiff.
