Teasing Georgia, a beautiful healthy rose in my garden

Teasing Georgia (AUSbaker), a David Austin climber rose. Bred in UK in 1987. This rose is just amazing in my garden. The apricot multi-petal 3.25" blooms are gorgeous with moderate fragrance and it's very healthy and blooms non stop in my garden. It is a must have rose for any garden. Helen

    Here is a bush shape shot.

    Wider than tall here, with no pruning or support.

    In my garden, next to Teasing Georgia is The Wedgwood Rose. Here are some of its pics. Helen

    Another soft pink rose is Scepter'd Isle. If you give it time, it will perform well for you. Mine is a bare root grafted on Dr Huey, and it took three years for this rose to reach its full potential. Helen

    Your photography is really scrumptious. The colors, the silky , satiny petals, the compositions.

    Stunning photos! You have taken these roses and captured every aspect of their beauty. If possible, they look even prettier than they do in person!

    I, too, love Teasing Georgia, and it has been by far the most successful Austen for me. It does very well for me tolerating shade, heat, and drought, and is disease resistant, vigorous, and floriferous.

    Erasmus & Dillybeansown, thank you for your sweet words. Digital cameras help us rose nuts capturing the beautiful roses in our gardens and sharing with other.

    I remember many years ago when I didn't know a lot of about camera, there are films with ISO 100, 200, 400, 800. I wanted the best quality of films so I bought the films with ISO 800 because it was the most expensive films. ISO 800 means the films are highly sensitive to light so it can be used to taking pics in door or moving objects. However, the down side of high ISO is the pics will be grainy. I used ISO 800 films to take outdoor pics of a family event, and all the pics were grainy. At that time, I thought something was wrong with the camera. On top of that, I had no idea something was wrong with the pics until after the films were processed and the family event was over. LOL. Helen

    Beautiful! Is Teasing Georgia as apricot as IRL in these pix? So different than the color in DA catalogue...

    I have 2 TGs. Mine can get more apricot in cooler weather. Its usually golden yellow and sometimes a soft yellow.

    These are all TG

    I just pruned my Teasing Georgia and I admit that I left it until last because I was a bit intimidated by the size But it was actually my easiest rose to prune

    It is a healthy beautiful rose

    That is fantastic! I decided to plant Jayne Austin on the fence and put TG next to Flamenco Rosita. I hope they look OK together and not like a hodge-podge. This is IF they make it through this crucial time as they're small cutting. If they don't I may just buy them as everything I've read about either is positive.

    Helen and bay girl, beautiful photos! I had picked up teasing georgia last year, only to discover that he gets much bigger than what is printed on the care tag.

    I ended up bringing it back and swapped it out for tamora which is also beautiful, however now i wish i had them both.

    I'm beginning to think tamora needs a big brother 🤣

    Wedgewood does get a little black spot during the dog day rainy summers. Not anything horrid. I don't spray so YMMV. I t replacese the leaves right away and keeps on blooming in our heat. I have it in full sun. I like it so much, I may get another.

    That must have been it! I've never had that happen before. Gorgeous pics. I have a small SI and since I recently read Peter Schneider recommends SoF for my area, I may just have to break down and get it sometime. It would blend well with the more lilac pinks in my front yard.

    Vap, Spirit of Freedom is in my perfect rose category. It has the look of a David Austin wedding rose and an excellent health of a garden rose. Helen

    SoF is so perfect here too. I agree with the wedding rose look.

    I have 4 SoF now lol. I put two in the ground on a new arch and have two more I need to find a place for still.

    I also got James Galway, which I dont know where to put it either...I'm not sure whether to pot it or plant it..How large did yours get?

    Sultry, James Galway can get to 10ft height.

    Dirt, beautiful pics. Love the color of George Burns. I didn't like its very thorny canes but its colors won me over, so I got it last year and planted it in a 15-gal pot. Love the look of Poseidon. If I cut the blooms and bring them in door, the blooms have the closest shade of blue one can get from a rose. Helen

    I got autumn sunset through high country roses, at first i thought i ordered through fresh gardens on etsy but i had to go back to look.

    I only let it produce one bloom last year to be sure i received the right rose, it smelled fantastic and was very vigorous in its first year so im looking forward to spring🙂

    Though the squirrels seemed to have gnawed the canes in a couple places so i may have to cut them back.

    As you can see im quite partial to the lavender and apricot blends.

    Angel face is a disease ridden mess however, an unfortunately i have two of them. I love the scent though, i have plum perfect coming this spring so i will probably replace at least one of the AF with it.
