Some Neat Roses Seen at the Gold Country RS Show

Brooks Red, a sport of Signature, made its debut in the Sacramento area at this show. It was exhibited by Michael Devencenci as Signature. They are very close but Brooks red appears to have a bit more yellow in the reverse of the petals and the color is red instead of pink as in Signature.

Angel Darling, an oldie but goody. I love this semidouble miniature rose. It seems like one of the members of this society is the only one in the area that has it. Ivanette Griggs was that yours?

Floranne, a sport of Crazy Dottie, is a staple rose in this show. It was found by Florence Pratt a few years ago. It is hard to find as it is only offered by Justice Miniature Roses in Oregon.

Sweet Home Alabama, probably entered by Colleen Gallagher, made its debut at this show as well. I have been growing it for about 3 years and it seems like I never get blooms that look as good as the one entered.

Space Odessey, is another miniature rose introduced by Weeks Roses, that is not seen very much. This is the first time that I have seen it. I have been growing it for 2 years.

Make Believe, is another oldie but goody. It was introduced by Ralph Moore many years ago. It is still on of my favorites. It is a semidouble rose.
