I Promised Her a Rose Garden (7)

Acapella rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. April 30, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

This is the seventh post on the roses in our yard.  The previous posts can be found by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ below.

Acapella is one of our newer roses, and it resides in a container along our driveway.  In addition to beautiful color, Acapella also has a delightful fragrance.

Frederic Mistral rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 1, 2012.

One of our most fragrant roses is Frederic Mistral.  This rose has a tendency to branch all over the place, so it it requires a lot of pruning.  But the the fragrance and color keeps it in our garden.

Glowing Peace rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 1, 2012.

Glowing Peace is another offspring of the famous Peace rose.  I really like the colors of this beauty.

Lemon Spice rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 23, 2012.

Another relatively new rose for us is Lemon Spice.  Both the color and the fragrance are ‘spicy’.

Medallion rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 1, 2012.

Medallion certainly takes the prize as the rose with the largest blossoms in our yard.  I first had this variety nearly 40 years ago, although we’ve had this particular bush for only a couple of years.  I think this rose definitely deserves a medal of some sort.
