I Promised You a Rose Garden

A reader commented a few days ago that we were missing roses in our garden and I promised to share. Well, we don't have a lot, but we do have an arbor we're trying to train two rose bushes to climb. The rose on one side is a gorgeous peachy yellow color with a multi-layered bloom. I think it's some sort of floribunda variety. The rose on the other side of the arbor is a beautiful deep pink, but it sort of gets lost among the prairie rose bushes along the back of the garage.
We've been delighted with the Carefree Delight Roses, a prairie native we bought at a plant sale last spring at our local arboretum. These prairie roses bloom constantly spring through fall, never have to be deadheaded, and grow so fast we can almost watch them spread. So, there you have our offering of roses.
