I Promised Her a Rose Garden (11)

Crescendo rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 11, 2012.

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

This is the eleventh and final post on the roses in our yard.  With this post I have shared all 55 rose varieties in our yard.  The previous posts can be found by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ below.

Crescendo (above) is one of our newer roses.  It was Jackson & Perkins’ Rose of the Year a couple of years ago.

Memorial Day, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 20, 2012.

Memorial Day did actually begin blooming on Memorial Day a few years ago.  It’s a beautiful, stately bush many wonderful blossoms.

Moonstone, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 13, 2012.

Moonstone is one of our container roses.  The blossoms seem to get more beautiful as the rose bush ages.

Peace, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 20, 2012.

Peace is said to be the world’s favorite rose.  It that’s true, I can understand why.  Peace was one of the first roses we got when we started our rose garden.

Sedona rose, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. June 16, 2012.  (Photo by Betsy)

Sedona is another relatively new rose for us.  The blossoms are a beautiful red/orange at the beginning, although the color changes as the blossom ages.  This rose got its name from the colors of the Arizona desert.
