>New Roses For My Garden

>Since the recent Birmingham Botanical Gardens Plant Sale, I have acquired several new roses.
(2 from the sale)

They are as follows:

1 – Old Blush – China Rose
1- Climbing Pinkie
3 – Sunny Knockouts
3 – Queen Elizabeth – Grandiflora (In honor of the Royal Wedding)
2 – Sonoma shrub roses (Scarlet Flowercarpet Standards)

I have all planted except for 1 Sunny Knockout and the Sonoma Standards.

This brings my current rose total to 73. I guess I really am on the road to 100!

    >Morning! Might try your sunny knockouts in light shade, they open bright yellow, but fade really quickly in the sun. It is slow to repeat and needs a bit more clean up than the other knockouts. Mine is by the driveway and it is in full sun, little water, does well. I had a QE at the old house, loved it too.

    >Sounds like you found some beauties to add to your rose collection. I have Queen Elizabeth and loved it but for some reason it did not make it through one very cold winter and I lost it.Have a Blessed Easter.
