Auguste Renoir roses

This gorgeous hybrid tea rose is also fragrant

My 'Auguste Renoir' roses are blooming their heads off. Each bloom is packed with petals and looks lovely in the vase. I cut them sparingly so I can enjoy their fragrance while sitting on the patio.
The 'Auguste Renoir' rose was introduced in 1994 by Meilland, a sixth generation family business that sells 12 million rose bushes each year. 

This spring I tried something new ― I fed this and my four other roses early with well rotted compost, which also makes an excellent mulch. It seems to have worked wonders. Here is proof that you can grow roses organically. I stopped using chemicals years ago.
