With a name like Katie-Rose, I was destined to become a gardener. I have eleven varieties of roses in my yard so far. I’m posting these in order of when they bloomed:
Roses that have not yet bloomed:
- Merlot (red), frontyard
- Burgundy Iceberg (dark purple/red), side yard
- Julia Child (yellow), frontyard
- Dream Come True (orange/pink bleeding rose), backyard
This is the first year for all of these roses. All but Disneyland were bareroot roses. (All but Garden Party and First Prize were from Jackson & Perkins.) I’ll keep you posted on the others. Burgundy Iceberg has buds and should open any day now. Dream Come True has beautiful, red-tipped foliage and should start producing buds soon.
Which of the roses that have bloomed so far is your favorite?
