Roses of the Week.. Black Bacarra and Pinata...(I missed last week)

I missed last week so I'm doubling up.  The first one is Black Bacarra.  I have started posting my newer roses so bear in mind..I don't have a lot of experience with them and they aren't established but faring well.

Black Bacarra is a velvety dark rose.  It does not fade and very similar to the color of Memphis Music.  It's not a huge rose but I would think it would be excellent for boutonnieres.  The rose does seem fairly pest resistant. 


According to the web, it prefers a lot of sun and does not tolerate cold.



Leaves are a normal green but this rose has fared pretty well.  According to the sellers, it isn't disease resistant but has stood up pretty well for me.  


Just a beautiful dark rose.  For more information on Black Bacarra...click HERE.  

The next rose I want to mention is Pinata.  It's a climbing rose.  Some people hate orange roses.  I don't particularly care for the color in and of itself but the rose is beautiful.  It's one of those roses that will change colors.


It is on the corner of the house and eventually I will peg it to the house somehow.

Once I put an irrigation system on it, it took off.  Now, logic dictates it probably does not look good next a red house but it's so distracting, I don't notice a house.  And it's at the back of the house.

 
It make tons of clusters that contrast with each other

I want to get masquerade rose to..It makes multiple colors as well.  Colors you will see are orange, yellow, pink, peach and variations of those.

I really love this rose.  For more information on Pinata, Click HERE

My camera does not do justice to the variety of colors I see.

Love the color of that Black Bacarra. Dark red roses are such a classic. Pinata really is a stand out rose. And a difficult rose to photo well.

Orange can be very hard...perhaps in darker lighting...thanks...on the bacarra.
