Roses for the Southwest Cottage Garden




It is spring in the Las Vegas desert and Roses are at their peak.   The above rose Koko Loco has unusual coloring and loves the heat.


 The pale pink delicate petals of Eglantine defies the Las Vegas heat and sun.




Fragrant Cloud is a hardy HT that blooms no matter what, this rose is a reliable bloomer in the desert.



          All Tea roses love the heat and grow into fine lush bushes. Above is the OGR Francis Dubreuil



Once 'Leonardo de Vinci' gets started there is no stopping this hardy climber.



Neptune HT another hardy bloomer for the heat.



Ramblers find a place in the heat and rise to the occasion.



Queen Elizabeth knows no boundaries and blooms 11 months out of the year.



Veilchenblau another rambler that that shines in the sun and heat.



Mr. Lincoln, a favorite for its large deep red blooms that are long lasting on the stem.




A little-filtered sunlight helps most roses to thrive 
in the Desert Sun.
