Stamen love

I just love the look of roses with fresh stamens. There are so few that can do it well.

‘Dainty Bess’ a single hybrid tea rose, is one of my first favorites in this category. This is not a show rose. It will close up in a cool room, but look at those stamens!

‘Jaqueline du Pre’, a shrub rose, is another rose in my garden that was planted because of beautiful stamens. It’s a keeper, don’t you agree?

The last one for today is ‘Darlow’s Enigma’, a hybrid musk rose. This rose grows like a weed! I have planted it getting minimum sun and it still produces large sprays of roses with beautiful stamens.
