Favorite roses with button-eyes

zaphod42February 12, 2014

I'm interested in finding and adding more roses to the garden with the pronounced button-eye. Thought others might be interested in a list. Don't worry about zones or disease resistance. Just a compilation of roses you have or have had that have the button-eye.

Mme Hardy - White with green button-eye

'Christopher Marlowe' has a very charming button eye and is also a good bloomer and healthy plant.

'Centifolia' has a lovely button eye; so do 'Mme. Plantier' and 'Fantin-Latour'. HMF rates all these as hardy in Zone 5. These are all beautiful, very fragrant, near-faultless roses of easy cultivation, though once-blooming. The old blooms do hang on 'Mme. Plantier'. Flower form, double, and shapely; 'Mme. Plantier' is often quartered. Color: 'Centifolia', clear medium pink; 'Mme. Plantier', milky white from pink-stained buds; 'Fantin-Latour' soft pink.
Oh yes, I forgot: 'Capitaine John Ingram', an enchanting Gallica-ish dark Moss, with small, double blooms with a button eye; the petals are violet and velvety on the upper surface and lavender and smooth below. You need to look at the flowers closely to appreciate them; it's not a rose for general garden effect. Take a chair out and sit with it a while. The color goes very well with clear pinks (like 'Centifolia').
If you ask this question again in late May-early June, I can probably come up with more varieties.

Beautiful buttons, hoov, and Pat. I love them all. I couldn't pick a favorite, but I will say I didn't realize Apricot Drift could be so lovely and petal filled; and Christopher Marlowe is not only gorgeous, but has a highly unusual and appealing, many petaled look.
I just realized I may have more button eyes ones than I thought, but here are two favorites of mine.
First, is Evelyn. Diane

Some lovely roses here. Hoov, I love that CM!

I think the only one I have that gets any kind of button center is Rose de Rescht.

I love this topic. Here is my favorite rose with a button-eye.
Small bush in my area, but great roses. Very Fragrant, too.

I'm excited to hear Capitaine John Ingram on the list. I just planted one last year and can't wait to see it bloom this year.
