My favorite rose are red and pink. They are not boring if they have the right shapes. My 'Alain' is bright red, my 'Intrepid' is dark red, and my 'Bride's Dream' is light pink. I would like to have yellow, but have not found one with enough intensity. White rose could be nice if they got the right shape to match the color, but I have not seen the right one. I might want to get 'Papa Meilland' (dark red) and 'Anna Pavlova' (light pink).
My true favorite is am unknown tea rose we grew in southern China. In the winter of 1968, it bloom gloriously in the heavy snow, the fragrance filled the quest quarter of the 'Sweet Fragrance Hall', as my grandpa called his estate acquired before WWII, but demolished in 1980's during the late development. I lost the garden with orchids, rose, begonia, Osmanthus, etc. How sad!
