Many plants sport new and different roses, and one of the most beautiful of these is 'Adam Rackles', which is a sport of the bush form of 'Mme. Caroline Testout'. A flower that looks as if it is made of wax or satin, it is marbled and not striped, pale pink and white. We are lucky enough to have a plant at Roseneath that has reverted back to 'Mme. Caroline Testout' and has both types of flowers on it. It flowers from spring to autumn on a bush that is well over 1m high.

Adélaide d'Orléans Sempervirens Rambler... whose double creamy pink flowers have often been described... as hanging in clusters just like the blossom on a Japanese cherry tree...

Thought by some to have been the 'White Rose of York'.

Smoky purple flowers [open] out flat to reveal an appealing green eye in the centre. It is one of those roses which changes colour as it opens, from a rosy purple through to a lilac-pink before finally fading to a delicate blue-grey shade ... [a typical Gallica] with its low-growing habit and flat perfectly formed flowers ... It is very easy to grow and suckers freely, which is why it is often found in old cemeteries and abandoned sites, where it has been left to romp.
