Singles are nice, I must admit. I have a few now. Silver Ghost, Mrs Oakley Fisher, Dainty Bess, Sally Holmes, Red Coat, Golden Wings etc.. Always on the lookout for more, also species roses. There are some very nice singles in the Scots roses too. Of course you have to work out how prickly they'd be, whether they are huge, and then there is the disadvantage of them flowering only once, like my Rugosa rose, Vanguard. It was superb, every bloom worth a photo, but now I have to wait a year to see it again.(sigh)
