This rose has been in my garden now for two seasons. It continues to bring great pleasure in our garden. I planted three shrubs in a triangle around my gas lamp-post on our front lawn. For some reason, I’m always nervous about planting roses in the front of the house. I guess I think the neighborhood association police will get me if they fail to live up to our “Stepford” standards….. The shrubs are now taking on the look a one large shrub with a lamp-post in the middle.
This rose has been designated as an “Earth Kind” rose. Earth Kind roses came out of a program sponsored by Texas A & M whereby they conducted multi-year field tests on roses to test for drought and disease resistance. The best of the best survived to become designated as “Earth Kind”. They have some great info on their website. I have provided a link above
Caldwell Pink is known for producing a profusion of blooms and needing very little care. I do not spray this rose and we do not include it on our MooPoo soil conditioning schedule, and they just thrive.
If your new to roses, plant this one. It’s beautiful blooms and stamina in the garden will amaze you!
