This is my second post about the roses in our yard. You can see the first post by clicking on the tag ‘Roses’ at the bottom of this post.
About Face is one of our most unusual roses. It gets its name from the fact that the outside of the petal is darker than the inside, which is the reverse of most roses.
Aromatherapy Rose has a beautiful pink color and a delightful fragrance, which is probably the reason for the name.
Chicago Peace is one of several descendants of the Peace rose that we have in our yard. Chicago Peace has more dark pink and orange than the original Peace rose contained. Since I grew up near Chicago, it’s always nice to see this rose in bloom.
If I had to pick only one rose as my all-time favorite, it would probably be Double Delight. The blossoms of this rose have a beautiful form and wonderful color. The fragrance is also wonderful.
Elle is one of our newer roses. It has beautiful pastel-colored blossoms.
