A rose called Tzigane... Gypsy;





Climbing rose Tzigane is in every aspect a very much wanted rose.
Its sweet fragrance redolent of warmth, sunny, happy days and sweet memories.
Even the buds are deeply scented. The colour, coral and gold, changes with the seasons.
In spring the colours are much stronger.
This rose is at every stage attractive. The faded flowers, gracefully let the petals fall.
This rose grows well from Zone 6
Large flowered
Meilland 1951
The Rose Family
The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is,
and so's The plum, I suppose.
The dear only know
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose--
But were always a rose.
Robert Frost

Four fabulous pictures of the stages of the rose. It has the most wonderful colours. I can't grow roses or vegetables, so I stick to natives mostly.

I have never been a successful rose grower. I've tried twice, but our winters are so extreme that I've never gotten one to overwinter, though I have friends that have roses here. But THAT rose in your post is so amazingly beautiful that I would be tempted to try again.

Every stage so beautifully captured. And the accompanying verse--loved reading it!

This hybrid tea rose is very beautiful. The French sure have a way with roses.

After your words and beautiful description I simply don't know what to say. It only remains to me to imagine its sweet fragrance and to look at the photos admiring the beauty of your lovely and really attractive roses.

The beauty of the rose is, they stay around all year round in different places regardless of the season.

I am honoured of your visit to my blog. And thank you also for following my photographic blog. I see more and more Australians being so active in the blogosphere.

Hi Titania, lovely photos, I could almost smell the roses (lol). Didn't know Frost could be funny.

Denise said...

Lovely to see this rose develop. Once again I have enjoyed your wonderful photos. I'm looking forward to the roses blooming here.

Diese Zigeunerin hat wirklich den Namen mit Recht verdient. Sie hat von der Blüte her, tatsächlich etwas wildes, ungeordnetes. Wächst sie bei dir in einem Topf? Oder habe ich das falsch gesehen. Stell dir vor, der erste blühende Rosenknopf ist schon vorbei. So früh, habe ich noch nie den unverkennbaren, süssen Rosenduft schnuppern können (zwar allerdings nur kurz, da Regen und Kälteeinbruch dem Blühen ein Ende machten!). Aber wir gehen ja dem Rosenmonat entgegen :-) !!
Viele liebe Grüsse,
Barbara

Beautiful - I wish I could smell it. I love the Robert Frost poem.

Sheila said...

Very pretty. I've never heard of it although it looks a lot like Royal Sunset climbing rose.

I love the colors of this rose, it matches the color of the sunrise in your photo. It must be quite beautiful on your Gold Coast. Quite different from what we call the Gold Coast here in Chicago. Happy gardening!

Thank you for posting these pictures at different stages of the growth of now somewhat rare rose. For those of us interested in the kinder gentler colour blends of the 1950s and 1960s, this is really helpful.
