Just a few more today. Everything slowing down.
This one may be Laure Davoust. These grow on lots of old abandoned homesteads. They send out suckers. They send out long branches that bend to the ground and take root. Overall, this is pretty much a pest in your garden or any other place that it comes up. I do not recommend anyone planting one of these.

Pretty roses - I even like your garden terror, Laure Davoust. lol. My spring garden season has been way early this year and my main flush is now coming to an end. Fortunately the majority of my roses rebloom nicely until mid July when the heat factor slows them down for 3 or 4 weeks.
Yes, old Laure looks really good at this time of year. Of course, I'm always cutting stuff off of it, uprooting suckers, and doing just about anything I can think of to keep it under some kind of control. Our season was late here, so the roses were a little late blooming and now it's getting just too darn hot. And in a few days, the Japanese beetles will arrive :=(
