A New Rose!

I bought a new rose bush at the Master Gardener's Rose Sale. It's a Julia Child--and I am in love with it! According to the rose information: "This lovely floribunda, produces clusters of blooms in abundance, from early Spring, right through the season, into fall. The famous Chef, Julia Child, chose this rose to bear her name. She loved the color, as well as the wonderful sweet/Licorice/Candy fragrance." It is suppose to be very easy to grow, heat tolerant and disease resistant. What more could you ask for? I saw these roses at the Arboretum a few weeks ago, and if mine even comes close to those it will be gorgeous. Wish you could smell this bloom--I think Julia would be very pleased!

Beautiful. I have a couple rose plants that were a gift from brother. I did replace the yellow knockout that was one of 5 that brother brought me. 4 of them died.

Lola--I hope this little bush survives, plus the other bush I got. When it blooms, I'll post a picture.

Thanks Barbee'! I like yellow too. Wish I had more room! I could really get into roses I think. :)

Racquel--lol, wish you could too! I think the scent is more like cinammon....it is yummy!

Hi, Yellow Knockout doing great. The red that survived is doing much better. Now just to work on replacing the other that he brought.
Squirrels took all my baby peaches. Arrrrg.
