    Phil, so glad you started this thread! That Rose Charmer and Lucille Alonzo are sooo beautiful!!! I am partial to pinks, so that is definitely candy for my eyes. Thanks for posting them.

    I hope others will follow suit, and for goodness sakes, charge that battery pronto. We want to see more.

    Phil, the photography on that Bravo is stunning. Look at it in the wiki. Great color. I didn't put the Lucille Alonzo in because the last photo was equally beautiful. Now, what is the green and white? Faye Miller is the next one and Sweet Marie the last, right? I'd love to have a name for the green and white. Thanks.

    Whoooops, forgot to mention Lillian Stoffringen, the compact green and white one.

    Will try for a few more tomorrow now that batteries have been replaced in camera.

    Take this with a grain of salt, Phil, but you know I like to take a stab at it:

    Are the first two the same? I vote for Comte de Germiny
    Cornelius for the third
    ? for the nice big leaf red
    Ernestine de la Rue for the last:eek:

    I hope we get some help

    Phil, somehow I had missed your post #6- it was like a gift this morning! Such gorgeous plants. I recently got a small Applause from Marie:D and I hope it grows up to be like the beautiful specimen yours is. Also, your Glen Roof has the best colored markings I've ever seen. Ron has a beautiful one with similar beautiful markings. Both yours are better than the few others I've seen for some reason. That's why I love seeing everyone's plants. It seems some are better clones than others.

    You seem to have a tendency toward pink in your garden? Do you think that's true? If so, what do you attribute it to? I know you use a lot of recycled mulch, right? And Kmag? What brand of the 0-0-0-20 do you use?

    Your Polychrome is gorgeous. So much pink color. I believe yours gets a decent amount of sun? How much does it get throughout the day?

    So many questions. Sorry. I am really trying hard to get cultural tips from all of you.:)
