Rose Order

Actually, a lot of today was spent on flowers. Frank told me this morning that our budget would allow us to spend a hundred dollars on roses, and I went wild at Arena Roses.

So, coming soon to a garden near me are these beautiful roses that will grow (and hopefully thrive) in zone 4.

chrylserChrysler Imperial Dark red blooms. Strong fragrance. 45 to 50 petals. Average diameter 5″. Cupped, double, full, high-centered, large bloom form. Repeats its bloom again later in the season. Care: Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In colder areas, you’ll probably find you’ll have to prune a little more than that. Hardy to Zone 4.

compassionCompassion: Orange-pink & orange-pink blend, Salmon-pink blooms. Strong fragrance. 36 to 40 petals. Average diameter 4″. Double, Hybrid Tea bloom form. Repeats its bloom again later in the season. Care: Can be pruned to maintain a shorter habit. Size: Height of 5′ to 15′ . Width of 5′ to 8′ . Growing: Zone 4 thru 10.

medallionMedallion: (From the Arena Rose 2002 Catalog) Apricot & apricot blend blooms. Fruity, Licorice, Mild fragrance. 35 to 40 petals. Average diameter 7″. Large, Old-fashioned bloom form. Repeats its bloom again later in the season. Care: Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you’ll probably find you’ll have to prune a little more than that. Size: Height of 4½’ to 5½’ . Width of up to 4′ . Growing: Zone 4 thru 9. (What caught my eye: Medallion wins the medal for huge blooms. During cold weather they have been known to exceed 7″ in diameter.)

prairiePrairie: White, near white & white blend [w] blooms. Strong fragrance. Repeats its bloom again later in the season. Size: Height of up to 4′ . Width of up to 4′
