I think this rose is just beautiful. I really enjoy it when it blooms. The fragrance is very strong. The flowers are shaped nicely too.Striped Roses are one of my favorite types.
The next rose is an unknown to me. It was given to me by a woman who moved to California in the 30's and carried a start of the rose bush with her. She gave me a piece to start about 20 years ago and when I moved to my new home I took a piece of that plant to start in my new garden. I have also given many starts to friends over the years. So I guess its a real heirloom rose.(-: Anyhow heres the picture.
I also have a few other varieties of striped roses that are not blooming yet.
