    Impressive list! A few I would recommend to you are New Dawn (Delicate Pink/Soft Fragrance), Gertrude Jekyll (Amazing Fragrance) and Bill Warriner (A Blooming Machine!) and, if you have the room for a large, one-time bloomer, Roseraie De LHay.


  2. Love this list and so much fun growing with you Merry Christmas to you and yours Annie

  4. You reached your goal. How exciting. Looking forward to seeing pictures this summer! What is the next goal?


  5. Angel Blue says:

    I have always wanted to have the Pope John white. it seems just lovely, with a red, maybe Mr Lincoln next to it?
    but the rose I would recommend is the Rio Samba. Fragrant without being offensive. strong and resilient. The rose lasts a long time in a vase and the colors that it grows thru are delightful!

    Great roses on that list Chris! I had over 100 roses at one time in the farm days. Now a little less than 50 here in my “in town” gardens. Some of mine are certainly on your list as well. I am getting a new Julia Child rosebush this year. How has she done for you? Lost my Strike It Rich rosebush over the winter and JC was a recommended replacement.


    • We have had excellent luck with Julia Child here. Usually begins blooming in April and was in almost continual bloom until August. She is a keeper! Disease resistance is very good. Only a little BS here and there. Nothing major.


      • roseman7stan says:

        I would imagine your humidity level there is higher than mine. Thanks for the report on JC. She is being shipped to me on April 23rd, so it will not be long until I am introduced to her blooms. :o)

    Now you into the evaluating varieties before new additions. It is all fun.


  8. LA Edwards says:

    I love this and the rose named Louise 🙂 Your photos and list of roses are amazing. How fitting I discover this today. My father loved roses he had nearly as many in the yard growing up. Today would have been his 86th birthday. Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden. The closest we have to something as wonderful is the Portland Rose Gardens, which are rather exquisite.

    Compared to you I am a rank amateur, nevertheless, I keep planting and caring for the ones I own, your roses are lovely. Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  10. carolisle says:

    I keep clicking on Cinco de Mayo to see it. Great list a lot I don’t know thank you.


  11. Gallivanta says:

    I am in awe.


  12. What a beautiful list of roses. I should have read this page before asking you about the English shrub roses. We share Golden Celebration from that list. What a lovely book you could publish based solely on photos from your garden! Best wishes, WG


  13. Chitra says:

    Hi 121 roses!!! Wow great….is Winchester cathedral rose stems have thorns? I want to buy white thornless rose with fragrant…. Can you help me….


  14. Phoebe Buskey says:

    Good afternoon. I am hopeful that you will be able to provide me with some guidance. I recently lost a Harison’s Yellow that had been growing on my property for approximately 80 years. I had to transplant it due to some renovations and unfortunately it did not survive. I am absolutely heartbroken. I cannot find another for purchase anywhere and pleas to fellow gardeners have gone unanswered. Is there any chance you may know of anyone who has them for sales, or do you know of any growers in the New England area that might be willing to give me a start? Thank you for your time, any advice or guidance is greatly appreciated!
