Roses - Durban July

Durban July is actually a horse racing event here in South Africa , in the City of Durban.
and it is the name given to this rose

it's beginings has lots of yellow

and then a little less

and then nothing

Pretty cool rose

happy blogging


  1. What a beautiful rose. I love how it starts out how bright yellow and orange when it is young. It kind of reminds me of the 'Rio Samba' rose.

  2. How big does this rose get? Does it have thorns? I have such a rose, and nobody has been able to identify it, not even the rose specialists at Texas A&M University. Mine will end with pink and white stripes.

    I love it!

  3. That is a lovely rose. I love the sunset colors.


  4. Wow, it is absolutely gorgeous. I would love to have such a rose in my garden. Great post! :)

  5. Hi Noelle , thanks you must do a post on this rose , would love to see pictures

    Hi Janie , it's not very big, hmm about 7 to 8 cm across the middle and it does have thorns.

    Hi Flowerlady that is so true .. it is sunset colors , I never thought of that , thanks

    Hi Rebecca I bought it from a South African Rose shop called Ludwigs , they produce their own named roses .. very nice
