    Hail Sosarians,

    I am about to try to alphabetize my collection of named Roses. Once that is done I would like to display them all somewhere in my Castle.

    I seek any and all suggestions for displaying these 200+ Roses.

    Thanks to all for your ideas.

    Are these whispering roses, this year's valentine's roses, or a combination? The type of rose will affect what you can do with it display-wise.

    You could Use the Rose in a Vase item or minotaur vases as a base item and set the roses on them for display? Rather traditional and could be easily adjusted to display a few roses per vase, perhaps, to save lockdowns.

    Could also display them on dyed gozas, put them in a "garden" along pathways or in alphabetized rose beds, bundle them in "bouquets" (small stacks with an item that looks like a ribbon or bow to hold the stack together), put them in a handmade display case... etc. 200+ roses all displayed singly will take up a LOT of lockdowns, especially if you're making pedestals or display cases for them all!

    I don't have enough roses of one type to play with for pictures, but maybe someone else will be kind enough to try something and post it.

    These are Age of Shadows named Roses, Whispering named Roses, but all other Rose types may also be used.

    Thx for the ideas so far.

    Gigantic trellis?
    Would make good additions to wall-climbing vines.

    climbing roses on walls with the woody vines can hold masses of roses and go as high as you wish. I used brambles to make rose bushes that hold roughly 5-7 roses each, rather than using hedges.

    you, my dear, have just far too much free time...may i suggest finding a hobby? o.0

    but if it helps....i also have alot of roses (though i've never alphabetized them LOL) and I put them all over the house in various ways, some are in walkways, some on the rooftop garden, and some displayed on small vases made by a crafter, they also look pretty on the bubbling flasks too.

    I use vines and raise the roses to make climbing rose vines as i have so many its hard to display them seperatly. My favorites i use the old potted plants.
