Moss Rose

Moss Rose
Rosa 'Gloire des Mousseux'
Synonyms: Gloire des Mousseuses, Madame Alboni

I had no idea that this rose had been bred in 1852 by the famous rose breeder Jean Laffy. There was a little bit of a distinctive air to it. There was a strong fragrance and that always makes taking the picture a little easier. A nice rose with a strong history.

Climbing Rose
Rosa ‘Climbing Gold Badge’
Synonyms: MEIgro-Nurisar, MEIgronurisar
Introduced: 1991 by Meilland Roses

This rose was amazing. The color was such a nice yellow. This variety is considered one of the heaviest blooming yellow climbing rose. The lack of fragrance was made up for with a statuesque appearance.

Since it is Sunday and that means Todays Flowers here is a bonus flower. Today’s Flowers for flower pictures from around the world.

Purple Wandering Jew
Tradescantia pallida
(trad-es-KAN-tee-uh) (PAL-lid-duh)
Synonyms: Purple Heart, Purple Queen

A nice groundcover for the tropical garden. This one was threading itself along the ground and the light purple flowers looked good against the dark purple foliage.

That is a nice shade of yellow. I like it. Not sure whether I will be putting any roses in (at least no more since my deer eating Knock-out episode).
