Can anyone suggest any roses similar to Bonica in another colour? I have a Bonica that flowers all summer and is flowering now in November. I would like more roses same height, resistance to disease etc.

Hi, The "Abundance" roses are good, very healthy and free flowering, they come in an assortment of colours, Pink, Cream, Red! Also the "Flower Carpet Roses", Red, Yellow, White and Pink. Not quite as big as Bonica but a less hard prune and they wouldn't be to far different.

Its the ideal time to buy them now as bare roots and get them planted, they will establish over the winter, whilst dormant, and have a good head start come spring.

'Bonica' is an exceptionally fine variety, so there are no direct equivalents in other colours, but in addition to Apuldram's suggestions you might care to consider the hybrid musks such as 'Felicia', 'Cornelia', 'Buff Beauty', 'Moonlight', 'Penelope' 'Ballerina' & 'Prosperity'

Many thanks. I have had success in the past with hybrid musks and these have grown very tall (Felicia) but a Buff Beauty and others which I bought two years ago are very short and spindly. Perhaps my soil means enriching, although when planted I do the right things such as using mycorrhizal fungi. I'll try again.
