I think the local lavender is Jaber bin hayyan as you mentioned in an earlier post
Umar sb it is Jaber bin hayyan.

I am also in love with roses and this passion is increasing . I wish I could manage to get them survive for three or more years, its very difficult to take care of them in monsoon and in hot summer session. Rose is indeed one of beautiful flowers to grow and it adds beauty of garden.

Beautiful roses. :)
The rust red / orange rose is beautiful. What is the name of the light purple rose?

PS: I am happy that I planted petunias in the rose beds :mrgreen: But I planted a few verbenias and antirrhinum too though not very colsely located.

Umar sb frangrance of this rose is mild. Will let you know the petal count tomorrow.
its really a difficult task to categorize or identify the roses and you have a sound knowledge about. Thanks for sharing information. If it is local bred as said by nursery man then it should be disease resistant?

Rafique saheb I don't know how this beautiful thread missed me! What an extraordinary garden with roses, dahlias and all the annuals. The Jabbar bin Hayyan is beautiful.
