December Roses

It’s hard to believe that our Christmas tree is up, we are weeks away from the end of the year and yet, there are roses…..

Shortest climber in my garden!

    You are fortunate to have such beautiful roses into December. The last of mine were frozen 2 weeks ago by a killing frost. Last night was 20F, Brrr!

    Hi Chris, isn’t it great that we live in an area where we are able to have roses in our gardens at this time of the year? I am so enjoying it. ‘Artistry’ seems to be a very lovely rose. ‘Oh, My’ is new to me and I am curious to follow up how it will do for you in your garden.
