Rose season is officially here in my garden and in the rose world at large (see rose calendar below).
The rugosas are exploding, so the fireworks are on as I have quite a few to explode! 🙂
Harrison’s Yellow is still adding the sunshine and new roses are opening every day. That is something to buzz about!
Other roses taking off …
Honey Bun … Proven Winner OSO Easy Series
Smoothie … Proven Winner’s OSO Happy Series
Little Mischief … This rose is from the Easy Elegance collection from Ping Lim. This small shrub is covered in blooms!
Madame Hardy: Damask
COMING SOON TO THE GARDEN…
Celsiana (Damask prior to 1750) … This is a very large shrub just full of buds and ready to explode any day now. The fragrance of this rose is over the top! It is a one-time bloomer, but soooo worth it.
Lady Salisbury (David Austin) … Look at all those buds! I just cannot wait to see the delicate blooms of this rose. Hopefully, I will have pictures to share in a few days.
Felicite Parmetier (Alba 1830s) … This is another one-time bloomer but the fragrance is out of this world!
Biltmore Rose Trials … Who will be the winner?
The Biltmore International Rose Trial is coming up next weekend! I have the honor of being a judge for the wonderful event under the direction of Paul Zimmerman. For more on the rose trials, read on here.

So glad it did well!! I think Harison will do well for you! And, I agree, the names can be hard to pronoun! Happy gardening! 🌹
