My first favorite cutting rose of the season (I'm sure others are to follow). Although not really much of a scent, she is incredibly prolific and has wonderfully straight long stems.
That second photo is just beautiful. There must be a spot for it in the anual photo contest. That rose must be fun to mix with other colors.
I suspect the lighting doesn't do justice
to the true color.
I betcha it is a deep velvety black-red !
I like that color to mix with blues and yellows. Very pretty.
It really looks like you're doing something really right The_Meadows. I should post some photos, as I've had one for over 4 years now, and have had practically nothing but beautiful roses; they are a little susceptible to black spot, but so's everything else here too :) . Beautiful roses !
Thanks for the compliments! I'm actually kind of surprised at how well they are all doing. Planted this rose garden a bit over a year ago (just over 100 roses in this one) and had to use a 35 lb jack hammer to dig many of the holes - way too much g in the dg!
Waiting for Black Magic to open but I think Black Baccara is darker and more velvety.
Fabulous! Now I want one too. I was suppose to not buy roses this year-until fall after I've redone' actually taken out and moved the center of my garden. My son came over to spray my roses for me and " UH, MOM! just couldn't help yourself could you." as I had him spray a double red knockout, "heirloom and a new peachy groundcover rose still in their new pots. LOL!
