The photos of these two roses makes for a lovely pink diptych! The one on the left is Silverado, a hybrid tea rose. The Yves Piaget is a hybrid tea rose, but also referred to as a romantica rose. They’re truly a sight for sore eyes after a long day (week!) at work. I took these photos within the past half hour. From my experience with these plants, the Silverado produces several medium-sized flowers in flourishes shortly after deadheading (see my previous post on this topic), which makes for a very active plant! The Yves Piaget produces a smaller number, but larger and very strongly fragranced flowers. I’ve noticed that Yves Piaget is also slower to bloom, but the results are worth the wait! I will give all of my roses a light pruning during the first week of August, to stimulate further flower production into the autumn season.
