With the recent rains, we have seen our roses bounce back considerably. We originally had three shrubs of ‘Our Lady of Guadalupe” and lost one this spring. They were planted in a row and the middle one died. I replaced it with ‘Gemini’ Hybrid Tea. The remaining two shrubs were a little slow to start this year but are now producing a multitude of beautiful pink blooms.
The blooms are medium sized and form a nice spray on a single stem.
This rose was advertised as having some fragrance and I was disappointed last year when I could not detect it. This year however, the rose does indeed have a slight fragrance that is quite pleasing…. I have been a bit disappointed in disease resistance but will withhold my comments for another growing season.
