This rose was rooted from one of my mom's old roses a couple of years ago and has grown, uh, pretty well in this container. It has large red roses and likes to ramble some. I somewhat buried the container and wrapped the canes around this trellis. (I accidently left some roses in containers at my old garden and the roots grew through the drainage holes into the ground and they performed much better than the ones I planted directly in the garden)
I believe this is Double Delight...
This is Joseph's Coat that my son gave to me one Mother's Day when he was a little boy.
I had so much hope for this newly acquired climber last year...ordered the old fashioned, bloom forever, big red blooms to climb the lattice and arch over the walk thru with cascading blooms...(operative word--BLOOM) Oh, it bloomed, some, and they were a very interesting bright orange, sigh.
Here is the top of it higher than the 6 ft. lattice....I actually think the first rose featured today is what this one was supposed to be. As you can see I have canes without leaves...HELP ME PLEASE!
I also have another climber on a little trellis that blooms light pink roses, also rooted from one of my Mom's. It's over by an Oak Tree by a Clematis, it is full of leaves and green as it can be...do I prune it too and how?
On a happier note...LOOK! I planted some Liliums on January 7...the Dolly Madison's are up! I also have some Glads up that I planted the some day, now I'm waiting on the Lilium Red Dutch to show up.
Do not pay attention to what Jack Frost did the the Walking Iris in the background they will recover just fine.
While everyone else around the country is receiving snow, we are receiving rain about every other day...
Today I am Thankful that today is supposed to be a sunny day!
