2019 NY Botanical Rose Gardens

NYBotanicalGardens: “Candy Cane Cocktail” (Hybrid Roses 2016)

To many, June means Summer vacations; walks along the beach; graduation; but to me the 1st weekend of June means the opening of the “Peggy Rockefeller Rose Gardens” featured at the NY Botanical Gardens, when the Roses are in full bloom.

Being one of the most popular exhibits at the Botanical Gardens, each year never seems to disappoint. Last year my Blog took you along my walk of the Rose Garden’s 700 variety of different fragrant Roses. I was amazed that with all the beautiful Roses featured last year, not one of the 650 Roses’ exhibited this year, was a repeat of those I enjoyed last year.

Last year featured many antique variety of Roses, some dating back to the 1600’s. This year’s NY Botanical Rose Garden’s were a delight of newer species of Nature’s “Fragrant Beauties”!

“Grande Amore” Tea Rose

Hybrid “Tea Roses” bear one Rose on each stem. The vast majority of “Tea Roses” are known for their strong fragrance. “Grand Amore” is a standout of the Hybrid Tea Roses due to its exceptional depth of Dark Red color!

. “Scepter’d Isle” English Tea Roses

While walking along the many pathways throughout the Rose Gardens, I tried to capture as many beautiful Roses that were newly planted in this year’s “Peggy Rockefeller” Rose Gardens. Surprisingly, we came across these roses which were left standing after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

It is no wonder that these Pale Yellow/Ivory Roses are an Award Winning Rose. “Polar Express” is known for its classic beauty and strong fragrance. In the second photo, I was fortunate enough to capture this pollinating bee busy at work!

One of the most famous of Roses is the Pink Cabbage Rose,

“Rose de Mai”. The Cabbage Rose is a Dutch descendant dating back to the 16th – 17th Century.

The next Rose we came across was this French Hybrid beauty, “White Meidiland” Rose, which was first introduced in 1989.

As we were finishing up our stroll among the beautiful exhibit of the

NY Botanical “Rose Gardens”, we came across this beautiful

Pink Rose with Yellow inner leaves, honoring “Julie Andrews”.

These are such a few examples of the 650 Hybrid Roses features along the many pathways of this year’s “Rose Garden” Exhibit.
