After having planted this rose about a month ago, I didn’t expect to see a bloom this soon. As you may recall, this is a new rose being introduced in 2013 and I was lucky enough to have been given a shrub to grow in my own garden from a friend. Just after planting this rose I noticed several new shoots and today one of them produced this bloom:
This rose was field grown during the AARS trials under no spray conditions and I have likewise not sprayed this rose since planting it in my garden.
It also has a great fragrance.
I’d put this one on my 2013 wish list!
