Rose Collection for 2017
For those who know me, I enjoy gardening. I have for several years now. A couple years ago, I decided that I wanted to set out a rose garden. It just happens to turn out that this year was the first year when the gardens had the most blooms. And today, I would like to share that with you. Since, its summer now, I don’t expect many more blooms for this year. Perhaps later in fall, I may have some more. Throughout the year, I have kept pictures so that I could put together a rose collection for 2017 to show everyone.
Altogether, I believe I have something along the lines of 13 bushes this year, and I plan on buying more next year. Many of my friends have suggested that I start sharing my photos of the rose blooms. So I present to you this year’s flowers.
For those interested
For those that are interested in what breeds that I currently have, unfortunately that is a little troublesome. Since a rose can have many name’s after their patent expires, sometimes this can be confusing to sort out. Below are the roses that I know I have for sure.
- Climbing Don Juan
- “Blue Moon” Hybrid Tea Rose
- Hybrid Tea Rose “Tropicana”
- Yellow Queen Elizabeth / Picante grafted mix
With that being said, I have set out some new bushes in a flower box for next year. These are sourced from a better nursery as well. I made sure to keep the tags with these five, so hopefully next spring, I will have 5 more to display. This year has been super rainy, and it’s been a battle keeping the black spot under control. But I think this year, my gardens did pretty well considering.
I hope you enjoyed my rose collection for 2017. Be sure to sound off in the comments if you have anything to add or suggest!
