I want to see your favorite roses! I'm new to rose gardening and feel like I'm going to be hooked once my flowers bloom! What is your favorite?

Julia child's- they made it through the polar vortex unharmed and smell lovely all summer.

There are too many to say which is my favorite. I'm with Kate, what ever is blooming at the time. I have a picture of Tiffany here. It is representative of a good hybrid tea. Mine are vigorous, disease resistant, good bloom production, quick repeat and great fragrance. I have many good ones, it is just one example. Some other good hybrid teas are Pink Peace, Perfume Delight, Double Delight, Tropicana, The McCartney Rose, the list goes on.. A couple of good floribundas, other than the previously mentioned Julia Child are Sunsprite and Love Song. I am just learning about Austins and Old Garden Roses and liking them so far. With roses it is all a matter of what you want, there are many possibilities.

Paradise Found is my favorite rose. The fragrance is strong and unique - indescribable.

Kansas girl - Here is a picture of my Love Song. Wasn't sure how it was going to make it through the winter, but it made it and is looking good.

SaraAnnâ¦I lost my Love Song this winter and I have not been able to find it. I am so disappointed. Your picture is lovely and that rose is outstanding. Lesley

I love my sun sprite and chiluly. And SDLM is also fast becoming a favorite. I love them all to be honest :). My nacogdoches and Don Juan are gorgeous and so are Evelyn and GC. It's hard to pick!

My three favorites.
Abraham Darby. Amazing rose. What fragrance and colour!
Twilight zone. A beautiful bush with beautiful flowers in my opinion.
And lastly a noid lavender. Fragrance is divine, so is its vase life. Spotless for me. Plus my grandma planted it. Always reminds me of her.
