I wouldn't know how to start to identify these lovely roses that line one side of our garden.
They have, obviously, been around for many years--probably planted when the house was
built in the '60's or '70's--and have been cross pollinated over and over.
Aside from their obvious beauty, they have a very faint but lovely smell.
Only one purple bush remains but it gives lots of wonderful blooms.
Last summer, I cut off a few limbs and stuck them in the ground in two
places, farther down the fence. To my very pleasant surprise, both groups
had lovely flowers on them this spring!
