I often receive tweets on the #RoseChat Twitter stream regarding the stages of bloom for roses. I was out in the garden yesterday and came across a spray of blooms and it struck me that we have all stages of blooms represented here. I hope the photos below will demonstrate the three basic stages of bloom for roses. The one not marked, I would call “unfurling”.. Is that a word??? (yes, thanks Mr. Webster)
