Common name rose

Although I'm not really a rose gardener, of course our garden features a few roses. Besides the species roses highlighted on other pages, we have several hybrid tea roses, which have special family meaning, and a climbing/sprawling multiflowered rose, pictured here. They get the typical rose problems (black spot and all), but somehow the garden wouldn't be complete without at least a couple cultivated roses.

Every now and then, we'll get a miniature potted rose for this occasion or that, and after it's brightened up the house for a while, it goes out into the garden. Sometimes they live for a few years, sometimes they die a quick and unceremonious death. The one shown here did rather nicely, tucked into a pot on our patio where some linaria had also self-seeded. I wouldn't mind if it came back for another year.
