List of roses I grow :-)


Good morning Folks ~ Well, it’s morning here in s.e. FL USA. It’s windy, has been for several days, is partly cloudy, and cool this morning. I did some hand watering, washed and hung out a load of laundry. (It’s now around 3 p.m.)

I’ve counted up the roses in my tropical jungle, and have 43, some in containers, some in the ground, some are duplicates. I was amazed that I had this many.

Here’s the list of names below.

A Vigoro 5 petaled deep velvety red, with a wonderful scent. Had a name tag, but looking up the name, it didn't match with this rose. C means container, G means ground.

'Mozart' hybrid musk - 1936 - C
'Kathleen' hybrid musk - 1922 - C
'Winecup' floribunda - C
'Barnhouse' - C
'Mr. Lincoln or Chrysler Imperial' (not sure which - C
'Sacremento Cemetery Rose' - C - from Connie Hartwood Roses
'Mrs. Atwood' Bermuda found rose - C
'Bon Silene' Tea rose 1834 - C - and maybe 2-3 in ground just not sure if that's what they all are
'Ruth's Wavy' noisette - C
'Louis Philippe' China - 1834 - G
'Knock-out Reddish' - C
'Carnation' Bermuda found rose ' C
'Crepuscule' noisette 1904 - C
'Fragrant Cloud' Hybrid Tea - 1963 - C
'Granada' Hybrid Tea - 1963

'Bermuda's Kathleen' a Bermuda found rose bred before 1956 - C
Unknowns - 5 - G & C
'International Herald Tribune' floribunda 1984
'Paul McCartney Rose' hybrid tea - 1995 - C
'Basye's Purple' hybrid rugosa - 1968 - C
'Drift' roses low-growing landscape roses
'Pale Lavender' no name – wonderful scent
'Old Blush' China - 1793 - G
'Climbing Don Juan' hybrid tea - 1958 - C
'Rose de Rescht' Portland - bred before 1900 - C
'Borderer' Floribunda, Polyantha - 1918
'Mm. Laurette Messimy' China – bred late 1800’s
'Maman Cochet' Tea - 1892- G
'Prosperity' Hybrid Musk - 1919 - C & G

They are not all in bloom at the same times, but all of them are repeat bloomers. Quite a few are the old garden roses which I love. Some have stronger scents than others, I love them all.

Ok, now for some recent pics of roses that are blooming.  Enjoy.

This is the Vigoro rose for Home Depot, the tag on it said, ‘Veranda’ Brilliant, but it definitely is not that. It is velvety dark red color with a fantastic old rose scent.



‘Sacremento Cemetery Rose’





The next photos I think are ‘Prosperity’. This is a cutting off my bush that is growing in the ground.






‘Paul McCartney’ Rose with brunsfelsia. Those white tubular flowers smell wonderful. Strong from late afternoon til next morning. The ‘PM’ rose smells wonderful too.



This had no name tag when I bought it and another for $5 each from a local nursery 2-3 years ago.


This lovely lavender rose was bought at HD without a name tag. Color scrumptious and it has a wonderful scent too. I love the frilly edges of the petals.


‘Mrs. Atwood’ is a little more peachy than is shown in this photo.


The next photos are of ‘Byron Beauty’ passion vine flowers. I went out last evening and the sweet scent from these blooms was amazing. I bought this at Butterfyly World last year.







Front patio, looking east.


Ok, that’s it for now.

Have a great week.

That's quite a list, Rainey! I don't know how you keep track of them all.


Stacey said...

Beautiful!! I love roses and that passion vine is stunning! The other day you said you were gardening on a budget and I thought about of the best things about gardening is the way it really can be done on a budget and people share with one another. Love your list!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Glorious beauty! My camera and I would go crazy with all that beauty around.

Cheryl said...

It is not only amazing that you have so many roses; it is equally amazing that you know them by name! (As a non-gardener, I am quite impressed!)

Annie said...

Crespiscule and unknown were the only snaps with my many different varieties of roses.

Junkchiccottage said...

Love all your pretty variety of roses. You are the princess of roses. Happy New Week.

Betsy Adams said...

Wow---you are so lucky to live where you do and can grow beautiful flowers/roses year round... Our roses here bloom from about May-Nov.... AND---some years we lose some of them (due to the weather mostly)... BUT---I love our roses (ground and containers)---and we usually have about 50-60 total throughout the season.

Hubby grows some test-roses for Edmunds' Roses ---so we can get some beauties sometimes which haven't even been named yet....

Have a great week.

Forty-three is quite a collection! Your roses are simply gorgeous, and I love the green wire bench, so charming amidst the blooms. A serene place to sit and enjoy the lovely views. xo

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Rainey, Your roses and blooms are gorgeous. The list is so impressive. I love reviewing the names of all your roses. I must save your list when I go to the nursery and looking for something new in roses. Sadly, my knockouts which were unbelievable, got that rose rosette disease and they will all have to be pulled out. It spread to other plantings too. The garden shop has no sprays or garden fix for this disease with roses. I am sick about that, but plan to start again and raise a whole new show of roses. Wish me luck. You are an inspiration to me. Have a blessed week. xoxo

Oh such lovely roses. :) I have seen that pretty passion vine once before at Washington Oaks State Park off A1A near Palm Coast FL. It's very pretty. I love how it looks all wild, and of course, purple...I love any flower that is purple. :)

Thank you for sharing your lovely flowers, they are so pretty. ]]

Wishing you a day filled with much joy and many blessings. :)

Well you don't call yourself "Flower Lady" for nothing! What a wide and wonderful assortment of roses you have in your patch. Such an amazing variety. You have taken such beautiful photos of them. Do you remember all these names, or do you have them marked? I can barely remember what types of flowers I have, let alone specific names. The passion flower is amazing ... kind of looks like a delicate unfinished piece of crochet!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

What an amazing list!! And the photos are lovely in regards to what is blooming have a little Garden of Eden there :)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Your yard must smell so nice with all of those roses! Is there a rose that would bloom with no direct sun in zone B? I am doubting it! LOL Nancy

Rue said...

So many beautiful varieties, Rainey! I only have five roses, but I have no idea what their names are. I'm hoping to put more in this year :)

love to you,

Maryann said...

Wow, you really have a lot of roses. Something must always be in bloom at your place! We have a few, probably about 9, but I don't know the names of all of them. They are my favorite cut flower. Yours are beautiful.

Rebecca said...

Oh, that passion vine flower! How exotic....
And I'd love to "plant" myself smack in the middle of the yard in that last photo! Yes, I would!

Dewena said...

I don't believe I've ever seen a rose I didn't like but I have to admit there's something about that simple little red rose at the top that tugs at my heart--and to have an old rose scent makes it extra sweet.

It's always Rose Heaven at Plum Cottage, isn't it? I think they do so well because of the lady who tends them.


Peter/Outlaw said...

That's an impressive list of roses. I can almost smell their fragrance and feel the warmth of your garden through your post. It's cold, wet, and gray here.

Gardener on Sherlock Street said...

Wow, 43! That's great. They are so pretty. Sure seem to do well for you. Love looking at your garden. Everything seems to just be happy together.

L. D. said...

Your flowers are all so wonderful. I don't know if my new garden has a single rose it. I will know in a couple of months. It would be fun to start up a few in a collection again. They don't do that well in Iowa. I have tow giant clematis vines at my new house. I am anxious to see what color that they are. Your flowers are doing well.
