Please post pics of your ruffled roses please please pretty please. Not really interested in reds oranges or yellows. Thanks a bunch!! Judy
I may have more than these two, but I need to get dinner going. So for starters, there are Angel Face and Augusta Luise. Others I have are Memorial Day, Easy Does It, and Dainty Bess which can be fairly ruffled. Here's Angel Face. Diane
Now here's Augusta Luise. Diane
Forgot about Wild Blue Yonder, which is ruffled part of the time. Diane
Judy - Here is a picture of LOVE SONG - It's the only one I can think of that I have.
Here's one that blooms pastel yellow, pink, and ivory--depending on the age of the blooms--all three colors often appearing at once--and nice and ruffly!
Easter Basket (floribunda)
In addition to being pretty, it is BS-resistant and about 3x3.
It's a smaller plant (at least in our area) but Echo Baby Tausendschon is lovely! Here's a picture from a few years ago :)
From Lavender's Garden
I have several ruffled ones. The first to come to mind were Just Joey, Bronze Star and Easy Does it, but those may be a bit orangey for you. Here are some lavender, purples and pinks instead:
Outta the Blue
Paris d'Yves St. Laurent
Wild Blue Yonder
Grand Dame (this one nods)
Singin' the Blues
Sweet Surrender with Peace (I love these two next to each other & Peace can be quite ruffled, but is definitely a yellow blend)
And a couple of Whites:
White Licorice (this one may have too much yellow for your liking, but it is a really good rose for me)
I don't have it any more but I loved the ruffles on this rose called Pleasure. Love Potion is ruffled sometimes but the other examples above are better. Love Potion has super fruit and rose fragrance like Angel Face does but sweeter, less fruit. More toward citrus like Sterling Silver. Pleasure's a nice looking plant and isn't too tall.
Here's a link for the picture since I didn't have one of my own.

I forgot to say that I have seen Royal Amethyst a few times at the Huntington and it is a beauty. My camera would not capture the rich color. The opening buds are some of the best.
KittyÃ¢ÂÂs right about Royal Amethyst. My pics donÃ¢ÂÂt do it justice. I got it February 2013 for a couple of dollars on clearance (a leftover) at a nursery. It was badly cankered and looked terribleÃ¢ÂÂ¦wasnÃ¢ÂÂt sure it would make it. ItÃ¢ÂÂs already become my favorite lavender and one of my favorite roses of any color now. It grew to almost 5 feet tall in a season, and bloomed just about non-stop from top to bottom, with the sweetest smelling, beautiful lavender blend flowers. Its blackspot resistance wasnÃ¢ÂÂt great in my garden, but hoping that will improve now that it's no longer stressed. Definitely, the least wimpy lavender I've grown.
The most ruffly rose I know, although a semi-double, is the delightful Ripples, a Legrice rose from the early 70s.
Jacqueline du Pre has that wavy-edged thing going.....but is not exactly flushed with health in my garden.
Here is Memorial Day. Fantastic scent. This is bud form.
Here is All American Magic. The flowers are about 3 1/2 inches wide I think.
Here is Gina Lollobrigida. No scent that
OOPS!! Sorry - forgot you didn't want yellows.
This is Paradise Found - pink blend. Fragrance is unique, strong and wonderful. This is one of my top 3 roses.
This is Frederic Mistral. It's a large rose bush with fragrant roses.
This is Perfume Delight. It, obviously has a delightful perfume. :)
Chicago Peace is ruffly.
Queen of Sweden is ruffly. I love this rose.
Nicole Carol Miller is usually more lavender than this. Maybe the camera makes it look darker.
Tounament of Roses - sort of ruffled
Oh dear! I see my rose obsession growing and growing! I have several of these already but will definitely be adding some more. You guys are awesome. I say every year "no more roses" but never listen to myself. Lol. I will be getting on HMF tomorrow to decide which babies I wanna add! Thanks so much!! Take care, Judy
Oh dear! Another drool problem! Diane, that angel face...yum.
Thanks y'all! Sooooooo pretty. Luv them all!
How has this thread made it this far without anyone mentioning one of my favorites, Yves Piaget? :-) Thought I had better pics of him, but here's what I have:
