Roses in November

This lovely fall weather has done more than give late raspberries for us to eat; we`re still admiring roses…in November!

Even with a serious case of frostbite, the rose ‘Frau Dagmar Hastrupp’ manages to glow with ethereal beauty.

Glossy new foliage on my ‘Colorific’ rose is testament to the mild, sunny weather we’ve been enjoying lately.

Julia Child is still cooking up creamy, buttery yellow buds.

The miniature rose ‘Debut’ continues to unveil copious blooms.  The flowers are more pink and white than the scarlet/white presented in warmer weather, but no less lovely…

The climbing rose ‘Stormy Weather’ has quadrupled in size since I planted it, and it’s loaded with flowerbuds…again.  So of course I decided it was time to dig it up and move it across the yard.  Now that I know it’s a climber I placed it somewhere it can climb, against the back of the house in my herb garden.

The empty spot vacated by ‘Stormy Weather’ will be the perfect place to plant two new roses I bought (on sale) recently.  ‘Crimson Bouquet’ and ‘Pretty Lady’ are tucked away in the greenhouse in case I don’t get around to planting them until spring.  We’ll see, in our mild climate it’s still appropriate to be planting roses in November.

About hortophile

I am a very opinionated, slightly obsessed gardener with decades of experience in the retail nursery industry. A lucky resident of the "Wet Coast" of British Columbia I tread a muddy path between practicality and beauty, with my veggie patch, herb garden and fruits vying for position with the beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers that I can't resist. DON'T ask me to choose between them! I believe in environmental responsibility and common sense.

    I’ve not grown Roses since living in Portugal 😦 They are such rewarding plants

    How… how are you doing this? I guess I’m just jealous. Everything around me has completely frozen into mush or dried out. I’m partial to roses that aren’t always pink or red… and I love your Julia Child.

  3. Very nice! I don’t live where that can happen!
