Pros/Cons of These Red Roses
I have Chrysler Imperial, Oklahoma, Crimson Glory, Mr. Lincoln and just bought a Mirandy today. All but Crimson Glory are new this year. I normally prefer the softer colors, but have become interested in fragrant reds this year.
Would like to know the pros and cons of these 5 - and any little quirks they might have [i.e. shade in afternoon, etc.] Would enjoy knowing which are favorites and why - any information would be interesting! I live in east Texas - it gets quite hot in summer so would like to know if I should give any of them afternoon shade. For whatever reason, I have not grown many red roses, but this year, I am really attracted to them......hate the name but really like the newer rose Ketchup and Mustard and it just arrived.
I know Mr. Lincoln likes to grow tall. My Crimson Glory is own root, is currently in a large pot and growing well. I plan to plant all these in a bed soon. Thanks for any opinions!
