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!

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.

I love hardy own-root roses!

When I saw a healthy own-root specimen of this rose in Walmart for $5, it leaped into my cart! I need some more "tough guys" to keep William Baffin company at the edge of the yard.

I have been admiring pictures of this rose for a while, so I was delighted to find one locally: at Walmart, of all places.

Talking about Rose (Rosa 'Milano'), GardenQuilts wrote:

A good alternative to red Knock Out roses.

I wanted to buy my neighbor his first ever rose. It had to be a no-fuss manly rose!!!

I was looking for a hardy, disease resistant, reblooming, colorful (but not pink) shrub or floribunda rose on its own roots and already blooming. I was thinking of a red double Knock Out rose, but didn't see a healthy specimen in the stores. I saw this rose in Lowe's next to the Knock Out roses. It has pristine, shiny, dark green leaves and deep red blooms.

One advantage of buying roses in big box stores is that you can see how the blooms age. (They don't deadhead the roses. I suspect they may not even water the poor things.) Milano's blooms stay red as they age, while the red Knock Out roses fade to a garish reddish-pink color. I saw very slight bluing on a couple of blooms: just a fine line around the outer petals, much less than on many very dark red roses.

The blooms aren't fragrant, unfortunately.
