Oops, Aeonium tabuliforme slips in too.  It is a rosette of sorts, if not a rose.  The special thing about this plant is that I grew it from seed!  One of my greatest horticultural achievements.

A Clematis gets into the rose post too...'Jackmanii' is way early this year.

Did you miss the roses after all those Aloe posts?  They are not fashionable lately, more architectural plants like Agaves being the trendy things, small rose vendors closing down--but I will always love roses.  They are architectural in their own way, after all.

  1. That last rose is my kind of lovely. But I'd take the Aeonium tabuliforme in a heartbeat, too. I'm so impressed that you grew it from seed. In fact, what does an Aeonium seed even look like??!!

  2. Gorgeous roses and clematis dear Hoover, I think roses will always have a place in the garden, for their colour, soft petals and amazing fragrances.
    What and achievement to grow the Aeonium from seed, I don't always have success with plant 'cuttings'. :(
    xoxoxo ♡

  3. You can always count on fashion to change so it makes sense to me to grow what you love. Your roses are universally spectacular.
