Some of my Roses

This is Dr. Huey.  This rose was named in 1914 for a Dr. Robert Huey an American Doctor. I am so sorry I do not know anything about this man. So as modern Roses go this is an old one. This is a mid size rose and very prolific in the blooming. I just love it. When it really gets going it will put up 40 to 50 blooms at the go. It is said to be the first climber. I do not use it that way but rather as a stand alone Rose and it does just fine that way. It may need a stake but it will do fine with out one.
Dr Huey is also the most used under stock for Roses to-day . Meaning the root graft. If by chance the upper graft  dies off this will be the rose that most likely will come from the root. I bought this as the Dr. Huey. I liked it so there it is. I wanted the true rose.

I like to show the flowers with out faults.  However, as you can see here the leaves are less than perfect. We had high  temps of 30 o C + for 11 days and high humidity. Problems will and do occur. Here on the Dr. Huey the leaves really do show signs of stress.

I posted this rose bush a couple times already, but why not, it is amazing. Again this is the Morden Rose, from Manitoba. I am so lucky to have this in my Garden. This will put up 20 to 30 roses on one flowering head. Incredible to see it in full bloom.

The Chrysler Imperial. My Favourite Red.. This guy looks a little sad. As well he might. He spent the night with heavy rains and winds. Still like a trooper he is doing his best to show his best.

The Explorer Rose John Cabot. John Cabot was the explorer who Claimed for England and King Henry VII the first out post to what would become the world wide British Empire, in what is now St. John's Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. I posted this plant before. He is such a simple beauty. It makes me appreciate the beauty of the much older European and English roses.

Henry Hudson, this is a great white. Of course the Americans will know this name because of the famous New York river that was named for him. We in Canada know him as exploring the Great White North (Canada). Hence the white rose.

This is the Champlain Explorer Rose, First Governor of Canada, That was when Canada was French. He was probably the greatest explorer of our history. He founded New France, created colonies. created a few settlements and a few have become world known such as Ville de Quebec and Ville de Montreal. He also established the first settlement north of Florida in Acadia (Nova Scotia) called Port Royal.

 The very best of the best. This is the Queen Elizabeth II Rose, it is named for our present Monarch who happens to be the longest reigning Monarch of our Nation Canada. She is the third longest to reign in Britannia, and the longest reigning queen in world history, and at the moment the second longest reigning monarch in the world to-day, and she is still going strong. This is considered the most out standing rose in the world and has been for almost 60 years.

If you where able to state the best Rose in the world which one would it be ?
For me the answer would be the same as the experts, the Queen Elizabeth


  1. I was reading you comments on Terry's site. Very humorous. Will roses be on your funeral.

    My song will be What a friend I have in Jesus. I requested that for my mum's memorial and also my son's funeral.
