There are some new additions in the garden. These were all purchased last year, but they were small plants which were not really ready for blooming. I have been focusing on more old garden types, including the class of once blooming roses.
This is Felicite Parmentier. It is a ruffled frilly rose in pale pink to cream shades. The buds are quite decorative.
These two darker pink roses are Gallica roses-Crested Sweetheart. The buds are very unique, much like chapeau napoleon. It only blooms once and has very thorny stems.
This is a repeat rose from David Austin-Princess Alexandra of Kent. Possibly my top five favorite rose right now. Very prolific bloomer with great scent and large gorgeous pink flowers that have a unique warm to cool coloring.
Here it is again on the left in a more opened state. They can be 5-6 across sometimes.
This is Ferdinand Pichard, a hybrid perpetual, it blooms more frequently, but has stubby stems. I have been on a quest for striped roses.
This rose in the middle is a nice striped one that I lost the tag to...have no idea now what it is, but it is a more modern type.
