Rosa 'Flaming Peace'

Photobucket
'Flaming Peace' is a color sport of 'Peace'.  It is the same in almost every way as the original 'Peace' rose, except for the color.  'Flaming Peace' retains the 'Peace' yellow on the reverse of the flower petals, while the front of the petals is a velvety red to purple, depending on the weather.

The other way I have observed in which 'Flaming Peace' differs from the original is the flower's ability to hold up in warm weather.  The original does a far better job.  'Flaming Peace' blows quickly and shrivels in temperatures above about 72F (22 C).  And...how can "Peace" flame?

Still, the distinctive color is irresistible. Photobucket
Nearby, 'Christopher Marlowe' shows his yellow button eye.

And next to Chris, 'Redoute' looks very fine, and without the mildew that will soon enough develop and mar its beauty:

I spent most of the morning raking and raking the Winter Project area into an even, level condition.  I was happy not to have to lug any more soil around.

The very sad little Nandina 'Fire Power's that were removed to make way for plastic grass I planted as an edging to the stairway.  If they recover and thrive, great.  If not, not much lost.  
Finished with the raking, I noticed 'Golden Celebration' looking like a lemon tree with all its yellow globes:

The "Dutch" Iris are a their peak:

And when I got back up out of the gully, sleepy Boris slowly woke up to greet me.  When he is very, very sleepy, his little tongue sticks out.

  1. Nice to see beautiful roses, sweet colours, and wonderful to know all the many petals fit in well inside a small bud, before it cracks open........

  3. Your beautiful roses always amaze me. But the lazy tongue trumps them - I'm becoming besotted with your puppies.
