Summer Nights Rose



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We only have one new rose in our yard this year, Summer Nights. I'm not sure how this rose got its name; it seems too bright and colorful to have anything to do with night. But we're glad to welcome this showy rose into our yard.

Delicious rose, I like the petals and as forming a heart in the center.

It has deep colors in it so this might be why it's associated with night. Lovely :)

Neal said...

Wow, that is gorgeous and so crisp and clear.

Faye said...

Very fond of these bi-colors (is that the proper name for this shading?). I can see how it could deserve this name--kind of like a showy sunset.

It's a beauty. Summer Nights is a romantic name. And it is a romantic-looking rose. I'll bet Betsy agrees!

What a beautiful splash of color!

It IS lovely, isn't it? Like Double Delight, but with more yellow. Reminds me of a summer sunset.

Craver Vii said...

That sure IS showy! Those colors really pop.

Carole M. said...

you know George; I have a rose that looks identical to this (growing in Ayustralia), and it's known as Double Delight. You may find it on Google/images I'm sure
