My once blooming mystery rose

Six years ago, Orion Roses in Minnesota had a going out business sale and I purchased several roses thinking this one was ‘Celestial’. It is not pink or ‘Celestial’ but since they business is gone, I have no idea what the identity of the rose is. It is quite large, drops it’s petals cleanly and forms oval hips and fills a space but I wanted a re-blooming rose in this location. Do you recognize this rose?

Stamen love

The Transplanted Gardener

I just love the look of roses with fresh stamens. There are so few that can do it well.

‘Dainty Bess’ a single hybrid tea rose, is one of my first favorites in this category. This is not a show rose. It will close up in a cool room, but look at those stamens!

‘Jaqueline du Pre’, a shrub rose, is another rose in my garden that was planted because of beautiful stamens. It’s a keeper, don’t you agree?

The last one for today is ‘Darlow’s Enigma’, a hybrid musk rose. This rose grows like a weed! I have planted it getting minimum sun and it still produces large sprays of roses with beautiful stamens.
