This spring I decided to document as many rose varieties I could find in my parent’s rose gardens. I’ve made a few photographs of them in the past, but I figured documenting them by name and variety (accurately) would be a good idea. Most of these roses fall into the categories of Rambler, Climbing, Old Garden, Shrub, Species, and David Austin’s English Roses. This is a sampling of those photographs – you can find all that I’ve made so far in my Roses Gallery.

I’ve been trying to document the extensive amount of rose flowers in my parent’s backyard this year – and have photographed all that have bloomed so far. This flower is a Rosa glauca species of rose (common name: Redleaf Rose or Red leaved Rose) in the backyard rose garden. This species is an ornamental here in North America but is native to central and southern Europe. Some of our own wild rose species aren’t quite as colourful, though the flowers look quite similar.
