http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.69116.2&tab=1 gives some information about today's rose 'LandLust'
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

Very lovely colour. London is sunny but does not have the spring flowers which abound  now in Cyprus.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

I was hoping to find a rose with a name related to Valentine or some derivative but no luck. So here is today's rose in the usual alphabetical order, a beautiful rose nonetheless,  'Lapural'.

The San Remo music festival has just finished here in Italy and here is a Rose by the same name. Not a good photo I am afraid but it gives an idea of what the rose looks like. 'Luci di San Remo'

http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.6245.1&tab=1 gives more information and a much better photo of 'The McCartney Rose' which was decidedly past its best when I photographed it in the Rome Rose Garden!

'Meicellie' is the next of the roses beginning with 'M'. I found this on the web. https://www.airosa.it/concorso/2005/concorso2005.htm

Another mystery rose for today. All I can find about 'Meilapiazel' is that, according to the label in the garden, it is a Richardier 2009 rose.

Apparently Meilapiazel won the 2009 Fragrance Prize at the Bagatelle's new varieties rose show, sweeping the board as it also won the public's and the children's fragrance prizes there. It was reported to have a very very appealing scent, reminiscent of raspberries and lychees - and to have beautifully shaped buds. There are a couple of photos of it on the Bagatelle's website, but Michle Richardier-Meilland doesn't seem to have put it into production.

Thanks for that information Alisdair.  :) For today here is 'Meilouvea'. Another Richardier rose which is elusive.
