ROSES: Autumn/Winter 2022-23

NollieNollie Posts: 7,470
Welcome to the new Autumn/Winter rose thread, posters old and new!

I’m sure there are lots more end-of-season roses to share, tell us how this challenging season went for you, which roses shone and which have a date with the shovel. What are your recent purchases, lists and future plans? Ask for or share your tips, recommendations or advice or just have a natter on any old rosey topic 🌹 

As you can see, flower arranging is not my bag, but here’s some blooms in suitably autumnal colours to start us off - Super Trouper, Julia Child, Lady Emma Hamilton, Golden Celebration and a dahlia bloom plonked in the middle:

    What is your new profile pic, @Nollie? It isn't the amusingly-named Lady Gardener, is it? I can't buy a rose with that name...

    Thanks for the new thread.🌺
    A better year next year to you, purplerallim.🌸

    It's a wonderful arrangement Nollie. Gorgeous colours.

     I thought "lady gardener" was a spoof name.

    My daily dose of rose heaven too Purplerallim. What with the weather and various personal challenges it’s been a bad year for many of us I think, so yes, cheers to a better one next year one and all.

    Ha, no I couldn’t being myself to buy a rose with that name either, WAMS. It’s Souvenir de Marcel Proust, but could be any number of Austin yellows - reminds me of The Pilgrim with those pale edges.

    I've still got a few blooms left on: Royal William, Winchester Cathedral, Margaret Merrill, Claire Austin, Nathalie Nypels (lots of blooms on these but no leaves!) and my new favourite, Elizabeth.
