‘Pretty in Pink’ Roses

I am invariably drawn to pink roses.  When I think  roses I think in ‘Pink’  I have other colors or roses in my garden but pink roses are by far the dominant color.  These pink roses blooming now in my garden are outstanding pink bloomers in the field of colored roses.

This is an outstanding example of a perfect pink rose. It starts it’s journey with almost perfect pointed buds and opens into a large mass of double blooms that fill the bush.

What can I say about this rose that the picture doesn’t say? It is a beautiful delicate mass of blooms and fragrance.

All of the above roses are excellent repeat bloomers and do very well in the hot dry desert climate.  General Schablikine is a tea rose that grows very large and is covered in pinkish blooms.

Heirloom is probably more purple than pink, but I listed it because the blooms and fragrance is so lovely.

This outstanding rose cannot be contained, it will grow to the Moon and back. Dainty clusters of pink florets cover this bush.

The large purple pink blooms on Mme. Isaac Pierre words cannot describe the blooms and fragrance of this rose. It grows to over 15 ft. and only blooms in the spring but so well worth having this rose even for a short period of time.
