This rose blooms with a hundred other blossoms on a bush that's planted right outside of the schoolroom door. I planted it there years ago when we were homeschooling the boys. They loved this rose because it is definitely 'masculine' when you think of it in their terms. The red and white reminded them of blood and all sorts of gory details that I won't mention. As they say, boys will be boys. I don't recall the name of this rose. It's a Jackson and Perkins brand, but I just call it 'The Boys Rose'.

    my homeschooled son has this type of rose bush...it is some type of hybrid. he planted it outside our computer/school room, and where we live it can bloom all year round if it is taken care of by him...if i try it begins to look sad.

    I have this rose bush! It is a "Berries n' Cream" and the blossoms smell like strawberries. It is blooming profusely now on a trellis on the south side of the house. I love it.

    I have a picture posted on my blog.
