I think I’m obsessed with Roses this weekend. Well who wouldn’t be if their whole garden was flush with rose blooms? I figured I might as well feature some of my lovely roses in my GTS posts this week.
This lovely rose is Gruss en Achen. I think it’s one of my most neglected roses. Oh they all get good care, but this rose is in the shadow of my slowly growing Japanese Maple. Once the maple fills in with it’s fine red leaves this poor rose gets far too little light. I’m sure it would be taller if it were in a sunnier spot. I must remember to move it next spring!
It’s a lovely rose and it’s a shame that it’s hidden pretty much beneath my short maple. Look at that full bloom. It’s an antique style rose with a light fragrance. Hardy little rose too … well worth trying in your garden if you enjoy roses.
Oh and if you enjoy roses you’ve got to take a look at the Star of my garden this week. My Climbing Westerland has given me it’s first ever blooms and they are to die for – go see for yourself!
