Today I am posting photos of all my English roses in colors other than pink. Above is 'Teasing Georgia' grown as a climber. It has taken several years to grow this large, and I hope my other English rose climbers will eventually reach this size.
Above is a close view of 'Teasing Georgia', which is a lovely soft yellow.
I have two 'Crown Princess Margareta' roses growing on trellises near 'Teasing Georgia' on the west side of our home. Their growth has been very slow for several years, but last summer I hooked some drip lines right up to their bases and they have been growing better since then. The sprinklers alone weren't providing enough water. The photo above shows the flowers as a little paler than they really are.
Here is 'Lady Emma Hamilton', which is tied with 'Abraham Darby' for my favorite fragrant rose. The out-of-focus flowers in the background show the rosy shades that remind me of a sunset. Unfortunately, this rose doesn't last long in a vase, but a bouquet can perfume a whole room for a couple of days before they wilt. I'm afraid this isn't the best photo - this rose really is gorgeous.
Speaking of 'Abraham Darby,' here he is during the first heavy flush of bloom.
And here is a close view of Abraham Darby's lush, huge, ruffled flowers. This rose was completely covered in rust in California, but I haven't had a problem here in Spokane. So it's not a good choice if you have rust problems in your area, but otherwise it is magnificent.
Despite growing in partial shade, 'Crocus Rose' is growing and blooming beautifully for me. The cream flowers mix well with other roses in arrangements.
'Claire Austin' is still getting settled after transplanting during our big landscaping project next year. David Austin gives this rose rave reviews, so I'm looking forward to seeing it mature. The flowers are exquisite.
This final miniature English rose is 'Francine Austin,' which I am growing as a climber. It's sweet myrrh-scented sprays are great to add to floral arrangements. I didn't see it in the catalog this year, but 'Snow Goose' is similar.
I feel so grateful to David Austin and other plant breeders who bring so much beauty to our gardens!
