I bought this rose from a "native plant" collection in Lowe's today. Of course, it was own root. I am looking forward to seeing it bloom.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Double Delight'), GardenQuilts wrote:

She is a diva, but she is a pretty diva. Worth the bother IMO.

I bought a healthy potted Double Delight to add to my red and red/white hybrid tea circular planting. It is keeping company with Ingrid Bergman, Chrysler Imperial, and Love. All were bought within a few weeks of each other at about the same size. Double Delight is the tallest one now. It took a while to get started, but it is growing and blooming now.

I planted the roses with Bayer systemic 3-in-one granules. I also treat them monthly. All my hybrid teas have a bit of blackspot on the lower leaves. Given the record rains and persistent high humidity, I am pleased that blackspot is only affecting the lower leaves.

By contrast, "disease resistant" floribundas on their own roots have pristine foliage despite the weather with the same fertilization/disease protection formula.

I am glad that I added the red/white Double Delight and Love roses with the "reds". The contrast helps the "reds" blend more harmoniously.

None have weathered a Pocono Polar vortex winter. All will be protected with peat moss and mulch or leaves. Mother Nature may add a foot or two of snow cover. I'll try to report back on the survivors next spring.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Celine Forestier'), Bluespiral wrote:

After approximately seven years in my garden, with either one or no roses produced in a given year, Celine Forestier finally produced 12 - 18 blooms this spring, in spite of growing at its northern limit here in zone 7, 3/4-day's shade and no spraying.

These are divine flowers of transporting fragrance, many-petaled shadows and elegant form. Perhaps growing up through a Sciapytis verticillata has given it an edge in surviving our winters on our NW-facing hill.

I just bought this rose from Home Depot.

What a gorgeous, big, red, fragrant bloom!

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Orchid Romance'), GardenQuilts wrote:

I just bought this rose from Home Depot. Blooms are fragrant, peony-pink colored, and old fashioned. They age to a lavender-pink.

Star Roses is marketing this as a "floribunda romantica." Very confusing marketing, but a nice rose.

I am glad to see more Radler roses available locally. IMO, this rose is much nicer than the ubiquitous Knock Outs.
