|Rosa alba 'Madame Legras de St. Germain'|
Old Garden RosesThese bloom only once in June, but are relatively healthy and have outstanding fragrance and beautiful foliage and overall habit.
Rosa alba ‘Madame Legras de St. Germain’ - double white rose on arching 7 foot canes
Rosa alba 'Felicite Parmentier'- small for an alba, with soft pink blooms. Sweet, fruity fragrance that is perhaps my favorite rose scent.
Rosa damascena ‘Ispahan’ - shaggy mid-pink blooms with heavy, intoxicating fragrance
Rosa gallica 'Cardinal de Richelieu' - deep purple-gray-magenta
David Austin RosesFlowers and fragrance like OGRs, but with at least some rebloom. They are supposedly somewhat iffy on disease-resistance - I'm trialing some that are reported to be pretty healthy. We'll see!
Austin rose 'Eglantyne' - tall rose with blush pink blooms
Austin rose 'Sophy's Rose' - double bright magenta red on a short bush
Austin rose 'Winchester Cathedral' - double white sport of 'Mary Rose'
Modern RosesThese rebloom reliably, but have little to no fragrance. I have tried to select disease-resistant varieties.
Shrub rose 'Lichtkonigin Lucia' (Kordes) - a tall willowy double yellow rose, said to be quite healthy for a yellow rose
Shrub rose 'Marjorie Fair' (Harkness) - Similar to 'Ballerina' but with darker colored magenta-red flowers.
Shrub rose 'Rosarium Uetersen' (Kordes) - a shortish climber with vivid coral pink flowers. Flowers abundantly. Blooms packed full with insane number of petals.
Hybrid perpetual 'The Fairy' - ubiquitous healthy little rose with sprays of small light pink blooms.
Rosa virginiana - a very late blooming native American species (blooms late June-July here) with bright pink single flowers. It has brilliant yellow-orange-red foliage in fall, and bright hips and red canes in winter.
