Until recently I had never grown the softer pink shades of roses and I love their delicate look. Here are some samples I have.

Do you have any colors you are especially enjoying?

First one is Royal Highness

RE: Softer Pinks

I don't have many soft pinks, but a couple are beauties. I'd also include Mystic Beauty, but it is a near-clone of Souvenir de la Malmaison, so you have that one covered.

Pretty Jessica--This Austin's buds are always fat and fully packed!

Anne Boleyn--not the strongest blooming Austin in my yard, but I do love its delicate pink shades--with just a touch of yellow.

Queen of Sweden--This Austin has a light flush of apricot in the center, but is still definitely a soft pink.

Love your soft pinks, Sara.

RE: Softer Pinks

Thank you Seil - Meredith is a fairly good rose for me and it has a nice fragrance too. It's a Carruth rose, but apparently not as well known as some of his.

Thank you Kate - Those are all gorgeous, love your Pretty Jessica and every time I see Queen of Sweden, I know it's one I just have to have, it's so beautiful! Looks lovely with the clematis.

Oh, Sara-Ann, these roses are so sweet..soft and lovely. Your roses are so healthy….I love to see your pictures. This is a hard time to have roses in our zone. So hot and dry. I have considered Meredith..might have to order her. Lesley

Lesley - Thank you so much. Right now most of my roses aren't doing that great either, the heat really diminishes the size of most of them. I've been missing seeing your roses this year, you have some lovely ones.

It dawned on me that at times Belinda's Dream is a very soft pink.

RE: Softer Pinks

Ooooooooh I soooooo love the softer colors. Love the pinks and peaches and creamy colors. Every rose on here is PURRRTAY!! I have lots of colors but am partial to them. Keep em coming. I may post a few. Here's The Alnwick.

Hey ctnguyen! My roses came from a local nursery or Chamblees! I have about 4 or 5 local nurseries that carry lots of roses each spring!!

RE: Softer Pinks

Wow!!! I love pinks!!! Those are so soft looking. :)

Here are some of my pinks I WAS enjoying. Notice the past tense - we had about 2 inches of hail in our yard. The winds blew my neighbor's table off their raised deck and smashed the table apart. I am not a happy camper - roses are a disaster. Anyway - enough of a rant.
Here's Memorial Day.

RE: Softer Pinks

thanks, prettypetals .. i have a few rose bushes but nothing as spectacular as these .. absolutely beautiful!!!

RE: Softer Pinks

Prettypetals - You have some lovely roses there, they all look wonderful! Carol - Your Memorial Day looks lovely. So sorry the hail storm has damaged your roses, mother nature doesn't play fair, does she?

Prettypetals - You are so fortunate to be near several good nurseries. Nearly all of my roses are mail order, I do enjoy the search and fortunately there are several great sources.

RE: Softer Pinks

Hey Sara Ann! The majority of mine have come from mail order but the last few yrs our local, and to me local is anything within an hour drive, lol, has carried lots of the varieties I love. I am fortunate for that for sure. Canadian rose your Memorial Day is beautiful. Take care, Judy

Sweet Surrender is an older HT which you don't hear much about. It is a beautiful shade of clear light pink.

RE: Softer Pinks

Harryshoe - Your Sweet Surrender is so pretty! I plan to get it again. Carol - It is a very fragrant rose.

I've had lighter pinks through the years, here and there, but never had very many at once, I love them!

RE: Softer Pinks

RE: Softer Pinks

Those are gorgeous Pat!! I found a body bag for $3 at Dollar General of Marchessa and couldn't resist. Almost died on me and has only bloomed once so still haven't decided if it's her. Budded up though so I will know hopefully in a week or two. Judy
