More English Roses, Anyone?

Pink roses
Rosa ‘Princess Alexandra of Kent’ has huge flowers on sturdy stems
A creamy white rose with several buds
Rosa ‘Tranquility’, a creamy-white rose with pretty sepals

These are English roses (except in the picture from Bodnant Gardens, other shrub roses, including old roses are mixed in). Completely out of season in gardening terms, but I felt we could all do with something to lift our spirits.

Dedicated to all who suffer when extremists try to impose their warped world view on the rest of us.

    1. I’m very fond of ‘The Generous Gardener’ myself. If anyone is ever tempted to buy a rose because of the name and have room for a short climber, that’s as good as any.
