The end of summer in Alabama is always a welcome relief.
The endless days of 90 + degree weather kinda gets to ya after a while.
With the cooler temps comes some of the most magnificent blooms of the year.
I was afraid I had lost this rose after our harsh winter, it died back to just one cane.
True to its resilient nature, it has bounced back.
As you can see, one cane now stands over 5 ft. tall.
This hybrid tea was introduced the year I was born, 1965.
It was produced as the result of a cross between
Chrysler Imperial x Charles Mallerin.
It is said to be hardy from zones 5a – 10b, and is known to grow up to almost 7′ tall!
This rose has a very nice tea rose fragrance.
