Poseidon in a vase?

kentucky_rose zone 6October 26, 2013

Poseidon has some really good references on several other posts. Would you recommend Poseidon as a cut rose? Any pictures in a vase? Thanks in advance!

No -- it seems to have really weak necks. Won't even hold its blooms up on the plant. The color and fragrance are really nice though.

Thanks for the pictures. The blooms are beautiful, but the stems are too short for me.

Maybe try Lagerfeld (starlight)
They are beautiful silvery lavender and smell like heaven. Stems are super long with a group of blooms on top. This rose wants to grow long stems all the time. You can pick off the side buds to get one big bloom. Cut before fully opened so they will last longer in a vase. The mature opened flowers aren't spectacular and they dont have tons of petals. But the buds opening up to halfway opened are magnificent. Worth having if you want to bring roses in and you want a fragrant lavender.
