In the foreground is the Hyb. Tea Tiffany. a fragrant and vigorous modern rose that is excellent for cutting. It's relatively disease free in hot humid climates when grown on Fortuniana, as it is here. In the upper left corner is the modern, tough as nails, climber "Parade". A gaudy , hot pink rose, that gets its vigor from its "New Dawn," heritage. New Dawn is a sport of the equally vigorous Dr. W. van Fleet , a once blooming rambler that was at one time ubiquitous in old Deep-South gardens. The Dr. blooms on a fence elsewhere in the garden and is stunningly beautiful when in full bloom in late May and Early June. It has none of the gaudy brashness of its grand child, Parade.

In the background center is the red China rose, Cramoisi Superieur, on its own roots. One of the great trouble free shrubs for the South. It blooms heavily Spring and Fall and sporadically in between. Light fragrance. It can be grown as an informal hedge. It is nearly evergreen in Zone 8b. There is nothing not to like about Cramoisi Superieur. It's one of the best shrub roses for mild climates in existence.
