'Teasing Georgia'

This is one of maybe three roses I have on the for-Florida Fortuniana rootstock, and it is very vigorous indeed, always needing to have LONG new canes tied to the rebar post. Now that there is a touch of fall in the air in Tampa (60s this weekend nights!) many of my favorite roses, including 'Teasing Georgia', are blooming. Here are some pics from past seasons. Enjoy, John

A Remontant Rambling OP Seedling of Blush Noisette Easily 7-8 Years Old

Good hip setter, very rambling, with a sweet scent reminscent of both R. multiflora and Blush Noisette. I may name and register it. John
