I'm house sitting for people who say they bought the house because of the garden. Can you see why I believe them?
I've known this rose for 20 years!
Family friends own the rental house where this rose lives. Those family friends and I have never been able to stay in one place nearly as long as this rose. Maybe that's one of the reasons I love it? Of course I love that the roses smell sooooo good and are so pretty and at the peak of growing I can harvest more than a dozen roses each day! This is my third or fourth year pruning it. I really have no idea what I'm doing but I do know I had to use a ladder to harvest the roses last year so I cut it back even more this year.
