This plant of what I believe to be 'Frau Karl Druschki' came from a cutting that I took at Hollywood Cemetery.
I'm not sure that there's a prettier white rose than 'Frau Karl Druschki'
In this photo, I see "Evonna's Yellow", 'Gail Borden', 'Mme. Joseph Bonnaire', 'Maria Stern', 'Shot Silk', 'Gruss an Aachen', and more.
'Mme. Abel Chatenay is an early Hybrid Tea rose that grows superbly on its own roots.
Vignette in the Hybrid Tea garden. 'Gruss an Coburg', 'Black Ice', 'Red Radiance', and 'Ma Perkins'.
'La France' is considered to be the first Hybrid Tea rose.
Such unusual coloring!
What a beautiful rose to be burdened with such a mouthful of a name!
This flower on 'Shot Silk' is huge!
This is a seedling that was given to me by a friend. He grew it from an open-pollinated hip from 'Belle Vichyssoise'.
A view of the combination of 'Kathleen' and 'Shailer's Provence' in the front rose border.
'Ghislaine de Feligonde' anchors the top end of the Rambler Fence.
'Banshee' is blooming like crazy in the ruin that is my Rose Field.
Pillar roses on The Arcade. 'Parade', 'Pink Pillar', and 'White Cap'.
The Miniature Garden ... which is actually huge.
'Alchymist' on the fence, with 'Birdie Blye' and 'Braveheart' in the foreground.
'Garisenda' on the fence, with 'Hi Ho'.
'Lavender Lace', 'Paul Ecke, Jr.', 'Golden Glow', 'Annie Laurie', and a lovely pale mauve rose that lost its tag.
'Alida Lovett' is an American rose that is very rare in the US. It's easily obtained at garden centers in England, however.
This time of year, I walk through the garden multiple times per day because things happen so fast. We have had mild temperatures, ample rainfall, and the roses are responding by producing LOADS of flowers. I wish there was some way to attach the fragrance along with these photos!
Remember, Open Garden Day is in two weeks ... June 7, 2015, from 10am to 3pm. I'm so excited to show you all of this in person!!
