11 thoughts on “Seven Sister’s Roses

  1. I found this online:
    1817

    Both this rose and R. multiflora carnea were painted by Redouté in France and both are frequently found in early Texas gardens. By the effort that it took to transport them through the intervening miles, those early settlers have left their own testimony about the need for beauty in even the most rugged human existence. ‘Seven Sisters’ is named for the variety of colors that can appear in each cluster of flowers, ranging from carmine through purple, mauve, pink, and cream as the flowers fade.

  2. and this:
    when they bloom, it is a riot! they bloom in groups of seven, are soft pink and about as big as the tip of your thumb.

  3. I, being one of “seven sisters” really loved them. I don’t know why they dug them out and got rid of them. Does anyone know? Last night at Ruby Tuesdays I had “Seven Sisters” wine with my meal. I just feel like that’s MY wine! Being one of seven sisters is the most wonderful gift that Mother and Daddy gave us…our brothers are wonderful too…but you don’t hear of “five brothers” roses or wine…ha ha

  4. When I was little, these roses were all along the gate and fence going out in the garden, They were beautiful, I was always proud that they had our name,being one of seven sisters. I don’t remember them being out at the front gate. Mother must have planted them after I left home. I wish I had a start off those bushes! I think Sigmund Freu knew what he was talking about.

    • On the top picture there is a plant growing up around the roses. They are about 3 feet high I am guessing. I would love to know what they were. Does anyone remember what color they were? If they were perennials? Where did they come from. Mother and her card playing friends traded flowers and seeds a lot .
