Planting New Roses

Post  Blossom on Thu Apr 03, 2008 10:31 am

I'm in the market for more roses - I planted several at the front of the house including iceberg and some Delbard roses. I specifically have white and yellow one there to reflect light into the house ( in my imagination) but also love the frangrant ones. Any suggestions for fragrant white and cream roses. I love them but I always forget their names!

Do you like the OGRS. Kronprincessin Victoria is a beautiful bourbon - has a yellow centre. Katharina Zeimet is a polyantha to die for.

If not the McGredy rose Full Sail is lovely and disease resistant according to HMF.

Bolero is a romantica rose .

Moonsprite is a cluster floribunda and has Suttor's Gold for a parent.

Jardins de Bagatelle - another Meilland rose - has a bit of pink in it.

Can't recommend any to you because we are in different climates but have heard good things about these. Hope it helps.

They have to stand wet feet in winter and dry conditions in summer. The front garden has really crappy soil and I haven't really had time to do anything more than mulch and feed. Roses do well there, although some better than others. I'll be adding more irises to the plot. I've taken a note of those roses and will see where to source them. Thanks Fran

I'm not up on white HTs really - avoid them like the plague because they never look that great up here. Yellows are the same - insects make a beeline for them - even in the hottest most arid climate. For some unknown reason they leave the yellow and white noisettes and tea roses alone. Don't think they'd do for you down there though - hot climate roses.

You are in rose heaven though - love to see yours in flower one day.
