Rose "Petrina" which does not get a very good write up here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.51173.0&tab=1and my photo isn't very flattering either :-(
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.

Hi All

Lovely rose pictures.
Just a thought.
Does the type of rose make a difference to viability and survivability?
Are the old rose types that don't repeat more suited to the warmer climate?

The only rose in Rome Rose Garden which was in flower last autumn and which began with "Q" was Queen Mary 2. https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.37406.1

Hi Speedozz. Can't really answer your question as I know nothing about roses. The idea was simply to post photos of some of those growing in Rome so that anybody interested in finding roses suitable for hot dry summers would some ideas of roses to consider.

Today's rose looks a lot different in my photo to the ones here http://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.71038.3&tab=36 'Rayon de Soleil' seems to be a washed out pink in my photo but the rose is bright yellow. Looking carefully at my photo you can see traces of yellow and on one of the photos on the photos page of the link you can a bush with fresh and faded flowers.

I shall try to write in good English today, though I hope you were able to guess what the missing words were in yesterday's post. Today we have 'Reverie' and there is reference to 2 different roses with this name here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/plants.php?searchNmTyp=5&searchNm=reverie&rid=4072&sbSearch=SEARCH&tab=1. I am not so sure from the descriptions/photos given that this is the same rose. The label in Rome Rose Garden reads "rose reverie, Croix  Francia 1977"

Seems the plant of Rosa 'Rivierenhof' in Rome had measles the day I photographed it. No such spots on the photos here https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.42901&tab=36

Don't know quite what to do. On the one hand, how could I skip a rose called ? Roma di Notte'? On the other hand. it seems the rose has been mislabelled. Here is my photo but compare it to the photos here https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.67712&tab=1 and you will see what I mean! could it be this 'Bella Roma' https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.36720.2&tab=36, or this https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.38534&tab=1' Lidi di Roma'?

"Royal Copenhagen" gives a change to the predominantly pink roses of late. More information and photographs here https://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=2.39938&tab=1

Lovely rose David.  We went to Pissouri Beach  this morning to collect our 7 year old  grand daughter who has been on a three day cycling break and she showed us around the hotel garden. There were some  rather beautiful roses , white, deep red, pink etc.  Only  one had perfume and besides that non had a label.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

Hi David.  The rose is lovely but I am not going to be tempted. We have a deep velvety red that is in bloom now.  It came from Adelaide via a cousin. There are 3 other roses that are getting ready to open.  For the first time there are 3 rose buds on my Pierre de Ronsard.  The rain has really helped.
