There are six roses in my rose corner including two "New Day", two "Peace", one "Double Delight", and one pink tea rose (lost the name tag).
"New Day" and "Peace" are those dormant rose bushes I bought from Costco. I put them in the ground in early March, and now they are growing so well with shiny healthy leaves. Each one of them has four to six buds, and some are opening their first blooms today.
I have been patiently waiting for them all blooms, so that I can share their beauties with you all. And, today is the day (perfect for Easter)!
I lost the name tag for this one. This rose has nice subtle scent, and about 5 inch across when it fully opens (Anybody happens to know the name?).

Here are three pictures I took for the plants that I thought were "New Day" roses from bud to full bloom. Do you see anything that matches the above description?! Where is that "bright, clear yellow"?
The only explanation will be they were put in the wrong package from the beginning, or some Costco customer misplaced them into this box for whatever reasons...
What should I call this color? Maroon, Violet Red, or Deep Pink? The flower is about 4 to 5 inch across, and if I dive my nose into it, it has nice fragrance (not very strong).
Anybody could give a good guess of its name? Despite of the mix-up fact, this is a very LOVELY rose, and I don't mind having them in my garden at all. The only downside is now I have another two nameless roses!
I know it might be very hard to identify this rose just by the picture, but I would greatly appreciate it if anybody recognizes this one and let me know its name, so I don't have to refer it to "fake New Day Rose" every time I mention it :)
For the first pink rose, Noelle at http://www.azplantlady.com/ recognized it as "First Prize", and I checked the picture of "First Prize" on the internet, and seems they match my pink rose very closely. So, I guess I got one less "Nameless" rose! "First Prize" it is! Thanks, Noelle!
For the mix-up roses, since nobody identifies the name yet, and Deborah at http://deborahsgarden.blogspot.com suggested call it as "Burgundy Surprise". I love it! So, before I can confirm its real name, I will refer this rose in my rose corner as "Burgundy Surprise". Thanks, Deborah, very nice name indeed!
