The heat of summer as arrived in Alabama. Temps are climbing into the nineties every day now. Some of our roses will go into a dormant state at this time of year and some varieties just bloom their hearts out. This post is dedicated to the bloomers of July.
Red Drift is ablaze with color around our mailbox this week. This rose never fails to please and is the topic of conversation to many who pass by.
Caldwell Pink is in her second flush of blooms this week. I just love the button center on this rose.
Don’t you just love the color of this rose? When Peach Drift blooms, she really puts on a show. A low grower, we planted this rose in a row of three beneath two tall crepe myrtles and they are ablaze with color this week.
First year in our garden and Water Colors Home Run is proving to be an excellent bloomer! Love the variation of color on the bloom and the contrast to the stamen. A very showy shrub.
Despite the heat, these roses seem to thrive. All of the varieties mentioned in this post are disease resistant and require no special care other than a haircut, water and some fertilizer.
Here’e to the bloomers of July! What’s blooming in your garden this month?
