Rose of the Week: Summer Surprise

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

This is another in the series featuring a rose from our yard.

Summer Surprise was one of our new roses this year.  As you can see, it’s a beautiful rose, but it is prolific and the blossoms hold their form and color a long time.  This rose has quickly become one of our favorites.

I do not know how you pick a favorite. You do not grow anything but beauties. I have a few still blooming, but nothing like this.

Gorgeous rose and your photo is fantastic (especially when enlarged)... This was one of my favorite 2014 roses. Thanks for sharing.

Love,

It is a pretty pink, then for me the surprise is the burst of yellow inside! Really, I think it is a yellow rose that is trimmed in pink!

Magnificent rose!! Awesome in colors. Well captured George

Craver Vii said...

The color contrasts make for an incredibly dramatic presentation. This would be one of my favorites, too!

It looks like a great addition to your collection. I need to get my roses covered with leaves before the really hard long freeze hits. I accidentally bought a T rose that won't survive the winter no matter what.

Hi George, wow... that's a amazing rose from your yard. The colour is so lovely, wish I can smell the rose fragrant scent.

Thank you for your kind thought re the Tennessee autumn leaves. I would certainly love to have some to add to my collection. Those leaves are great for art and crafts :))

Have a great week ahead,regards.
