Above is my little white china rose, Ducher. Note how healthy this one looks. It's already got a bundle of buds too. I just planted it October '08.
Now comes Double Delight. Planted July '08 on Fortuniana rootstock. Who says you can't plant potted roses in the heat of the summer? Just keep them well watered. There were/are some mildewed and blackspotted leaves, but not enough to even phase this one yet.
This is Belinda's Dream with two beginning buds. It's also pretty healthy for this rainy time of year. Very few spots on the leaves. Planted October '08.
Archduke Charles is about to start another round of blooms. It also shows almost no disease. Planted October '08.
