Rose


This is one of my Home Depot roses. Shortly after it was planted, I developed an interest in antique roses and a disdain for modern grafted varieties. I don't know the name of this rose, and I'm not even sure that the orange/yellow blooms were on the original plant. It's in a shady spot, and it doesn't get much attention from me. Every once in a while, the plant will push out a flower. I love the sunset colors in the petals, as well as the shape of the bloom.

You may not be thrilled with it, RSorrell, but that color is pretty cool, and you said it's in shade - so it has a few virtues:)

Forgive me if you already know this most excellent rose source: http://www.antiqueroseemporium.com/

I heard Mike Shoup speak a few years ago, have his book and have ordered from his nursery...wonderful plants!

It really is true...the antiques and especially own root roses (all I say I'm going to buy from now on!!...famous last words) perform so much better!!

Good luck with your roses!
