Yet another rose that I grow in my garden:
This is a beautiful small rose bush called Lavender Dream that I grow in my front flower bed. If I remember correctly it’s a floribunda.
The flowers are only about 1.5 inches in diameter and they bloom in clusters. So when the small bush is blooming it’s just covered in flowers. It blooms three or four times each season. Right now, since it’s cool outside it doesn’t have any blooms but it’s covered in rose hips.
Remarkably some of my roses are still blooming – Breath of Life, Scent-Sation, Just Joey, Fragrant Cloud, Graham Thomas, Sunsprite, Moulinex and on and on. Why they are blooming- I don’t know. Many of them have very few leaves left, while others still have most of their leaves.
Roses are strange beings.
