Francis Meilland, Love Song, Veterans Honor

sara_ann-z6bokJuly 1, 2014

I am encouraged by my Francis Meilland. It is putting on some new growth and had two blooms this time, looks like it might be putting on a third, I'm excited, it is a beautiful rose.

Love Song - I don't get very many one to a stem blooms on this rose, here's a rare one.

And Veterans Honor - I really like the looks of this rose, but mine seem to be weak stemmed, hope that improves as it becomes more established.

Francis Meilland is a must for next year. Veterans Honor - show stopper! Loving Love Song - is it always such a delicate shade?

Frances--wow! A beauty.

Hope your vibrant Veteran's Honor firms up by next year. I have a couple that are less vigorous than I'd like also.

Thank you ladies. Sylvia, the color of Love Song is lovely every time it blooms, it's a very nice rose. FM seems to be a winner, but may take a little patience and hopefully the vigor of my VH will improve.

Is anyone growing Francis Meilland without fungicide in the East, South, or Midwest?

Thank you everyone - I think Francis Meilland wins the day. It truly is a beautiful hybrid tea with that classic look and a wonderful fragrance, and seems to be disease resistant, you can't do better than that. For me it has taken a little patience, but it has been worth it. I think Andrea from Michigan had a bush shot of it last year, that might actually be a better climate for it. Hers was beautiful.
