Hybrid Musk Roses

Hybrid Musk roses are wonderful shrub roses, introduced in the early 1900's.

For more information: Hybrid Musk Roses

I have several and enjoy them all.

Below are the ones that I have growing now.


Ballerina ~ 1937

Felicia ~ 1928

Penelope ~ 1924

Prosperity ~ 1919

I also have Lavender Lassie but no pictures yet.


I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.

Those roses are beautiful! Do they have edible hips?

Thanks Sue. Ballerina does produce hips. Some of my other roses do as well, but I've never tried doing anything with them.

I really like ballerina, nowhere to put it though.
Is Penelope yellow? I'm partial to yellow roses for some reason.
