Beautifully Colored Roses
Light Peach to Deep Coral Colored Roses - A Photo Gallery
This hub article is dedicated to showing a beautiful range of colors in roses. If you set out to look for orange or peach or coral colored roses, you will find that there is quite the range of colors. Add to that, the level of saturation of colors, light to dark. Sometimes this changes even within each rose itself as it matures from bud to aged bloom.
I appreciate roses more than I ever have before in my life. Having grown up with very beautiful and relatively easy to grow roses in Southern California with my dad and grandparents gardening, I realize now how spoiled I was. Granted, it is simply a fact that it is easier to grow all kinds of roses in a climate like Southern California affords. That said, I now live in the Midwest USA, and while we get the seasons, we don't get quite the perfect climate for growing roses like before.
Looking at some of these pictures I have taken over the years, I recalled how a bud of a rose can be a deep color, whatever that color may be. As the beautiful bud opens up, you see more of a beautiful flower, but sometimes a range of hues of the color of the rose. It is all things to enjoy in growing roses or just enjoying them when we can.
Add to that, some are perfumed beyond what we could have expected! Some have a faint pretty smell, but some are knock outs in the perfumed department! Make sure to truly take time to smell the roses that you come into contact with. They are one of life's great many simple yet profound pleasures that you and I don't want to miss out on. If I have learned anything over the last several years, one of the most profound is that life is precious and fast. It is flying by. Taking time to smell the roses isn't just a cliché little statement to me, but something worth doing.
My best recommendations for viewing roses like these and of all colors, is to go to your local Botanical garden if you have one, or go to one of your local nurseries and peruse what they have there. Some are known for their great selection of roses. I have been known to be at even a local Walmart, or Lowe's, and smell and see their roses in season. If you keep your eyes open, you will see them! Better yet, find out what grows with little care in your zone. Even if you don't have a green thumb, you can have success growing roses!
I hope you enjoy all the roses here. These are all photos I have taken myself in varying places. If you don't have real roses nearby, let this help bring their beauty a little bit closer to home. There are several photos here, some are in thumbnail form. To see them all, make sure to click the thumbnails or view the slide show so you don't miss any of these roses.
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." William Shakespeare
