Am I right in thinking I recognise the garden? Did I buy some own rooted tea roses from you, Cree? Your garden is a picture. What is the red rose in the last photo? These you posted are simply beautiful. thumb2

Betty,
The red rose in the last photo is sold under the name Francis Dubreuil which is a tea rose and this seems unlikely. It is more likely to be Barcelona an early HT rose.
The blooms do crisp in hot sun, so a position with mid day shade is better for it. Fragrance is very nice, it repeats quickly, get some black spot here.

Deb, the red one wouldn't be any good here, I'm a bit short of shady spots. Stands out in your garden amongst the paler colours, that's for sure.

I am not too keen on it personally. I used to have a tree near there that shaded it, but it blew down in the wind. The plant looks good in spring, but come summer it burns to a crisp.

I think Cramoisi Superieur a China rose is a far better rose for Australian conditions. Same lovely dark red flowers, but looks good year round.

Red in middle is Cramoisi Superieur, pink behind is Mrs BR Cant, yellow to the left is Cloth of Gold a tea noisette.

Three beautiful roses in my opinion. I didn't know that Mrs B R Cant could grow so huge! Shocked LOL.
