Oh not good, such sadness for the family,and they will probably have a lot to deal with..A little rose will be of no importance at such times..I may try puting in the RHS and see what comes up. Thank you for that Dovefromabove..

The second looks like sea pinks, which flower near the sea in some areas. Cultivated ones are called thrift.Cannot see the top one properly.

With any of your plants if you are not ready to plant them out don't let them die. Plant them into a bit bigger pot and give them a feed, try and help them bulk up and even if you do not know what it is, think of the excitement of waiting for it to flower next year.I have taken tiny shoots of plants I could not identify and potted them on and been rewarded for my effort. I once bought a job lot of tiny dying unlabelled plants from a garden centre one springtime, some of which my Son- in- Law stated were weeds.I took them back to The Shetland Isles in Scotland where I lived"A very cold place" and grew them on.One of these plants I loved when I saw it grow,and when I looked it up it turned out to be a "Meadow Rue".I brought it back to England with me when I moved and I love seeing it come up every year. You could space your plants out in a corner of your garden and next year move them to the appropriate place when they have grown and you can identify them.

Thank You Panda,It is unusual in its different form on each bush.Rosetta it would be nice if it is a brand new type.Silverfairy Thank you and I did look on that page at the four green roses there, but I still could not say it was the same as either of those.Plus mine has a scent and I think it states they do not.I went into the garden to smell the dying roses on the bushes to see if I could define the smell a bit more but they are too far gone now to give the scent.Dovefromabove, I may just try that web address you have given because I am in no way a rose expert, just someone who continually pots on because I hate to see a plant die and will give it every chance,I have had some interesting results with other seeds I propagated through the years of other plants.But this may take someone who knows roses to get to the bottom of what it is.It would be interesting to know what their thoughts were on it.

Yes thank you,I did look iceberg up.I looked at a lot of different photographs of it but could not find any that looked anything like my green roses.It is a completely different rose to mine.I had to wait until my Granddaughter was home from University because I did not know how to put the photographs on, she put them on for me.I watched Monty take cuttings of roses a year or so ago.My husband tried it with our other roses and we had great success and flowering roses on the stalks this year.I am now trying to think if it is the right time and I might try to take a couple of stalks from these bushes and see if and what those stalks produce.

Oh I will look that one up, but the green ones do not change colour.They are not white with a green tinge,they are a definite green and stay that colour until they die.Unfortunately I was late in taking the photographs,they were really past their best, but I only just came across this site and thought it was a chance to see if anyone knew what they were.Next year I will take them earlier showing what the different bushes produce.These are 4 different bushes. Photo 2 shows both roses growing on the same bush, yet completely different colours and shape.They do have a nice rose scent.

 A number of years ago I recieved a small basket with flowering rose bushes for mothers day.Later that year I decided to pot them on to see if they would survive.I was surprised at the number of separate roots in the small basket but potted them on individually.The following year I noticed the roses which flowered first were different to what comes on the bushes later, and that they were green and a different shape.I overwintered them for the first couple of years in my unheated greenhouse.I continued to pot them on each year in bigger pots and leave some outside overwinter and some in the greenhouse.I have never been able to identify this rose.The first flush comes out green and stays green until it dies.Some green ones on one of the bushes has a fleck of pink. The second flush of flowers are pink and some come from the same stem as the green rose.This happens every year.Does anyone know why it flowers this way?
