A rose garden at the height of summer is a breathtaking sight. At this time the June roses haven't faded yet and all the repeat bloomers start their flowering season.
Many once blooming roses repeat sporadically in the fall if the weather suits them, but if you want a consistent display of flowers throughout the summer try grandifloras, floribundas, hybrid teas or hybrid perpetuals. The latter are a special treat for the rose afficionado; they blend the charm and grace of old garden roses like bourbons, chinas and noisettes with the resilience of species roses into low maintenance varieties that bloom freely all summer long.
I can't help myself; just a few ideas for splendid fragrant roses:
Reine des Violettes - rich violet purple, fully double flowers, flat and quartered, fragrant.
Boule de Neige - pristine white, snowball shaped flowers with an old bourbon parentage, extremely fragrant.
Gertrude Jekyll - bright pink old English rose, considered to be the most fragrant.
Eden - a blush pink and white climber with a light citrusy fragrance; its overflowing clusters of flowers fully justify its name.
America - a very fragrant salmon pink rose with fully double flowers, a modern climber variety bred for disease resistance.
Mr. Lincoln - a classic tea rose, deep red, exceptionally fragrant.
Pope John Paul II - huge pure white blooms, one of the most fragrant hybrid tea roses ever created.
Radiant Perfume - a long stemmed grandiflora with bunches of bright yellow flowers and a strong citrus and fruit scent.

I started blogging in 2010, to share the joy of growing all things green and the beauty of the garden through the seasons. Two garden blogs were born: allyeargarden.com and theweeklygardener.com, a periodical that followed it one year later. I wanted to assemble an informal compendium of the things I learned from my grandfather, wonderful books, educational websites, and my own experience, in the hope that other people might use it in their own gardening practice.
