>We are seeing more blooms this week from the new roses we planted in the early Spring.
The weather here has been unusually cool since Sunday. It was in the upper 80’s and low 90’s last week! Now, this week we are seeing lows in the 40’s and highs in the 60’s. A perfect recipe for powdery mildew on my roses. Several of my bushes have suffered with it this Spring. I had to completely defoliate two of my roses and start again. That happens sometimes. You just gotta roll with it! Enjoy these beauties:
Beautiful “peppermint” colored blooms on nicely forming shrubs.
I look forward to many years of blooms from them.
