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?

Francis is so beautiful! Love song and veterans honor are both beautiful too but Francis is breathtaking!

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.
