Two Roses

Large-Flowered Climbing Rose
Rosa 'Fourth of July'
Synonyms: Crazy for You, WEKroalt, Hanabi, Climbing Fourth of July

Here are two roses introduced in the 1990’s. ‘Fourth of July’ is a good producer with a nice scent. It’s coloring makes it a bit of a novelty but the fact that each flower is different is interesting. My “Fourth of July’ seems to be growing more like a bush than a climbing rose. Maybe this year I will let it grow out a bit more and see if it will climb up the fence around the rose garden.

‘Easy Going’ is a floribunda rose that was introduced in 1998. It was discovered as a sport of ‘Livin Easy’. It has been featured on this blog once before. It is an easy to grow rose that seems resistant to black spot.

Tuesday was the last day of the gardening season. I hope to have some notes on the past year coming up soon. Yesterday I had to go to the dentist for a multiple extraction. What a way to start the off-season.

Nothing says the holidays like multiple extractions. Hope you recover nicely.

Thanks Les. It hurts less than I thought. Out with the old and in with the new.
