Some people shy away from once-blooming roses, preferring roses that will keep on blooming throughout the summer and into fall. But the Old Garden Roses (OGR) that bloom only in late spring to early summer really go all out to please. And many are very tough, the Gallicas tend to sucker so spread slowly into a rose thicket. Most are hardier and more disease resistant than the modern long-blooming roses, which were bred from China repeat flowering stock that was less hardy. The once-bloomers can concentrate their energy after blooming into growth and preparation for winter so can endure more drought and poor soil. The Gallicas are blooming now. Tuscany Superb is a very dark red, verging on black.
Belle de Crecy is more of a mauve color, and very vigorous at making a thicket and suckering.
Rosa Mundi is a typical Neyron pink rose color variegated with white. It is a sport of the Apothecary Rose which was the rose used in Medieval for healing and anti-bacterial properties. Its fragrance has calming and restorative qualities.
Another Gallica that was ordered as the red James Mason, turned out to be a white with pink edges that someone ID'd for me as the Leda Damask rose.
Some other OGR's are blooming now as well, with repeat flowering ability. Hybrid Musks have been good bloomers for me, especially Cornelia, with larger 3" blooms-
Lavender Lassie has been very slow growing, still rather small and with few blooms, but a little larger each year and still alive. Buff Beauty did not make it through its first winter but I may try it again someday.
A prolific bloomer I discovered in the San Jose Heritage Rose garden is Excellenz Von Schubert, a Polyantha rose, with many clusters of small fragrant roses.
