My Favorite Roses

I'd like to share my observations about some of my favorite roses, which I currently enjoy both in the garden and in bouquets at home. The first rose I planted was 'Altissimo' because I thought it best to start with a red rose.  By autumn of that year, I was sold on roses. The rose grew about 6 feet, had large deep red flowers that continued to bloom all summer, a moderate fragrance and large hips of a glowing orange suitable for fall bouquets.
