I want to give my wife a rose bush for valentine's day.

Any thoughts?
Varieties?
bare rooted or containered?

Any posting including the words "Valentine's Day", "wife" and "bush" may get
unlooked-for responses.

Hi Robert,
What a lovely idea. Possibilites may be:
Rosa Lovely Lady, rose pink, fragrant, HT.
R. Lovers' Meeting, orange, slightly fragrant, HT.
R. My Joy, deep pink, frag., HT.
R. Valentine Heart, soft apricot pink, v. frag., Floribunda.

Another idea would be to choose a rose with her name, or which reflects her
name in some way. The RHS and many rose growers keep lists of themed roses
or roses with first names, for just this kind of occasion.

Hope you find what you want.
Spider

has a large database of rose names.

Should have something appropriate listed.

If you want a classic dark red scented rose that is easy to grow and
has a long flowering period, I'd suggest Velvet Fragrance.


I've just remembered that the name of the other one I was trying to
remember is Deep Secret - also deeply red, velvety, and fragrant.
