|Plant, water, prune - Bride's Dream:|
Rose farmer's hand to show the size of the bloom.
All the tree trimmings are sitting on the future rose section. Why? Because the rest of the front yard is planted. No grass, just roses and other supplemental plants.
So I am thinking about the next set of roses - for you and for me.
|Paradise Rose is front and center.|
Whom did they call for a big rose give-away?
The rose farmer.
One suggestion - get multiples of the same variety. I would not start with three or five KnockOuts, but perhaps get one or two later.
Why buy three or five:
- Double Delight
- Veterans Honor
- Mr. Lincoln
- Pink Peace
- Falling in Love
- Queen Elizabeth?
| California Dreamin' is chasing the Peace bi-color look,|
and nobody objects.
All roses are rather weak at first, getting established.
Let the fungus and earthworms do God's work
and future years are really rewarding.
|Falling in Love is difficult to get started but|
all the ladies love its delicate white/pink colors and fragrance.
Veterans Honor is staggeringly beautiful in the garden
and long-lasting in the vase, pure red and fragrant.
|Queen Elizabeth steals the show whenever it blooms,|
tall, stately, ethereal color, perfect flowers.
