Flower Friday: Oscar Peterson Rose #FlowerFriday #Perennials #Flowers #Roses #EasyElegance

I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and decided to begin sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Today’s share:

Oscar Peterson Rose

We just planted a few new roses in a newly landscaped area in our backyard. This new area is now complete, except for a few little staining projects to finish on the deck. The weather has cooled down, and it’s raining, which is such a blessing. It’s been a rough week.

We have a handful of Knock Out roses, but this new rose is something else.


When I first saw it, it appeared to look just like a Knock Out rose. Once the flowers opened, we were all in awe of this splendid flower.


The blooms are a stunning creamy white with a yellow center. They put out many blooms at one time too. What’s more, we don’t have any flowers in the landscaping this color.


You may be wondering about the name of this rose; it’s named after a famous Canadian Jazz musician, Oscar Peterson. How cool is that?

Here’s a photo of the tag if you’d like to locate one for yourself.



I thought the price was a little high, but for something that comes back every year and blooms all summer into fall, it’s worth every penny.

Thanks for checking out Flower Friday! What do you have blooming this week? Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. We have knockout roses around our patio. They’re the only kind of roses I’ve ever tried to grow. My dad used to have several different colors and varieties of other roses, but it seemed like he had to put in a lot of effort to keep them healthy. This Oscar Peterson is beautiful!

    1. Aren’t Knock Outs beautiful, Teri? I’d love to see what your dad had in the way of roses. We have red Knock Outs mainly, and they do take some work with pruning and treating. Ours get holes from bugs, and we’ve had disease in the past. We use a special product on them that protects from disease and bugs, and I believe it feeds as well.
      It’s nice to be able to add a new rose to the family. Have a wonderful weekend, Teri.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have much full Sun so they wouldn’t do as well. But they’re interesting. Kind of like dogwood flowers. I like the pebble ground cover especially the colors.

    1. These are getting a little under 6 hours of sun and seem to be blooming fine. We have one in the front that’s super finicky with it’s sun requirements. With a large sand cherry growing on the side, if that gets too tall, the roses will stop blooming. 5 to 6 hours seems to work out just fine though. I’m not sure if there are roses that would work with less sun though. There are so many other beautiful plants that will though!

      Thanks, David. 😀

    I love roses of any kind. Your great grandpa had wild roses on trellises off the front of the porch and they had lots of beautiful blooms each summer.
    The Oscar Peterson is gorgeous! Nice share Jen! 🥀

  4. I have heard of the jazz musician, Oscar Peterson! Whoa, that flower was named after him, interesting 😊
    I love the flower; it’s a beautiful white with a bright yellow in the centre. Just looking at them will surely soothe your mind I think!
