Two Roses


Two Roses

Here are two roses from the big rose garden. The first is a Floribunda named ‘Outrageous’. It has some beautiful blending of the colors and is a fairly large rose. It does seem to get blackspot but I have managed to keep it clean this year. In 2000, this rose was chosen as Jackson & Perkins Floribunda of the Year.

Registration name: JACzap
Breeder: Dr. Keith W. Zary, US, 1998
Introduction: Bear Creek Gardens, Inc.
Petal Count: 25 to 30
Fragrance: Strong, honey
Parentage: 'Summer Fashion' × Seedling

Heirloom

This second rose is considered a mauve blend and is a Hybrid Tea. It has a nice fragrance and has been a consistent bloomer.

Registration name: JACbloom
Breeder: William A. Warriner, US, 1972
Introduction: Jackson & Perkins Co
Petal Count: 9-16

This final shot is some climbing roses at the end of the rose garden.

how beautiful. I can nurse a sick cat or dog or mouse no problem - but being a plant in my home is like being on death row. It's depressing. Thinking of investing in plastic plants!
