We won't see roses bloom until late June. Early July sometimes. Do you have trouble with Japanese beetles on the roses?

Japanese beetles, black spot - you name it, I fight it all summer long.

Lovely pictures. I love the yellow ones but that pink one is beautiful, too.

Somebody likes yellow! 😊
I seem to have only a few yellows.have more red than any other color of roses, ....I count 9, not including red bi-colored ones.

What is that deep buttercup yellow bud?? ...right side, third down? I love the color.

All the yellow ones are the same plant, just different stages.

@Heidi68 Gaye Hammond, perhaps?

@MikeInBatonRouge I have been looking & looking for the little tag off of it (I save them...) but darned if I can find that 1 - found 4000 other ones but not the one I was looking for. Par for the course. Anyway, I took this a little while ago.

Currently in the foothills of NC. I was worried the couple of late ice storms was going to kill everything but luckily so for things look good.

Thank you! Some of my bushes don't look great but they are all budding so y'all are going to be flooded with roses!

@Heidi68 do you know how to keep the blooms coming on longer?

@freeofgod mine bloom most of the summer into the fall. I do fertilize them and instead of mulch I use grass clippings under them.

@Heidi68 , wonderful. And if you prune the dead blooms off back to the first set of five leaves they will never stop blooming. Almost never. I raised roses for years but finally gave up over the Japenese beetles, rust, powdery mildew. All the fun things the KY humidity brings with it smile003.gif

@freeofgod I do cut the buds off. Yeah, I have all of those problems but love roses so .........
