Back at the beginning of May, Lara and I went up to Witherspoon Roses in Durham. I wanted to get some new modern rose bushes. I have been concentrating a lot on the period roses for the last couple of years and I have come to realize that I miss having the color and scent of roses that bloom all year. As much as I like to the medieval rose varieties, the fact that they only bloom in the spring for a couple weeks does leave me wanting more. Why should I limit myself to just roses that bloom in the spring? I should instead demonstrate the variety that are roses!
Here are the three rose bushes I chose:
So far, they are still in pots and at least one of them does need to be sprayed for blackspot…. I guess I didn’t get as much resistance as I had hoped. Right now, none have blooms on them so I need to look at the labels to see which is the one that I need to spray.
