My F.J. Lindheimer Rose

I love the rounded look of the petals before it is fully open.
The  F.J. Lindheimer is one of my favorite bushes. Named for Ferdinand Lindheimer in the 1800's, it a Texas Pioneer Rose.
 It has a lovely yellowish apricot color which blooms lighter as the weather becomes warmer.

But the ruffly look of the petals when the Lindheimer Rose is fully open is really pretty too.

And it smells so nice.

It is planted right by my front door so I see it all the time.
The leaves are a pretty rich green.

The literature says  the F.J. Lindheimer Rose grows to about 4 ft.  I have had mine for almost 5 years now and it is almost 5 ft.  And we need to take into account Gustave...the Hurricane that flattened this rose!  As I  cut the roses I am cutting the bush back down to a lower height. 

It doesn't need much attention at all, except to pick the roses to bring inside.

I like that it really is an upright bush.  I don't have to do anything and it  grows just  right.  I feel like I can get more roses for less space.  I would like some more of these upright roses!


  1. Oh, I love it! My favorite color. Pretty bush shape. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. Oh it is a beautiful rose Jeannie. I love the golden yellow color. Yellow color! Not pink! LOL! Just having fun with you. I love your pink roses and especially that Fairy rose of yours. Does this yellow one bloom all summer or only once?

  3. Oh, if only I had room for one more rose... Gorgeous!
