Flower Friday - Nicole

 'Nicole' roses

This week's featured flowers are 'Nicole' roses!  These floribunda roses have beautiful white petals with dark pink edges.  The foliage is dark green and glossy.  Rose season is coming to an end as the weather grows colder and wetter, and none of the roses in our yard will bloom again until next spring.  But a few rose varieties continue to bloom through the end of October, so we took a walk through the rose garden at our favorite local park to snap a few photos of the final roses of the season & we'll feature them as the next few Flower Fridays.  To learn more about about 'Nicole' roses, which are sometimes called 'KORicole', 'Raspberry Ice' or 'Tabris' roses and are often confused with 'Hannah Gordon' roses, check out the 'Nicole' page at Dave's Garden, the 'Nicole' page at HelpMeFind, the 'Nicole' page at Ozarks Gardens, or Martha Stewart's  'Nicole' page.

I have this rose too. This one is done flowering, but I have one other rose that's just finishing up. This is a great rose but it doesn't last off of the plant very well :(
