Jan Brider's Top Plant Recommendations: Favorite Roses for Southern California.
Rosa hybrid 'Home Run'
Got this one for my Grandsons and it is a cutie and it is a offspring of Knock out and it is very healthy. It is a single form and many blooms. It has a deep red color and always in bloom
Rosa hybrid 'Leonard Dudley Braithwaite'
Had to get one of these on my list and this one is a child of Mary Rose and The Squire two of my other favorites. It is a true Red and greet old fashioned form. Dark leathery leaves
Rosa hybrid 'Outta the Blue'
Love the color of this one, multi tones Magenta to lavender blue. The scent is strong and the plant is very healthy and a strong grower. The form is very casual and this makes it easier to see all of the colors.
Rosa hybrid 'Sally Holmes Cl.'
Lovely buff colored single blooms. Huge buff clusters of buds that open to a lighter color flower. Healthy and a constant bloomer.
Rosa hybrid 'St. Patrick'
I love the color and the touch of green. It blooms constantly. It is slow opening so it holds it shape when I cut and bring them in. The colors change from sprint to the summer heat.
Rosa hybrid 'Touch of Class'
Large pink blooms with the most exquisite form. The tight center spiral. The leaves are a dark green and the plant is a vigorous grower.
