Growing Roses in My Utah GardenGrowing Roses in My Utah Garden
By Paul2032 on February 10, 2013

Roses are considered to be challenging by many gardeners, but here in Utah I have found their care to be quite easy. The rewards during bloom season far exceed the effort needed in order to have a lovely rose garden. A near perfect bloom brings me great pleasure.

To me this is one spectacular rose. Spring bloom is among the best in my garden. Should be a great show rose because of its wonderful form. Its fault is that the gorgeous color fades quite quickly and the full-blown blossoms lose their charm. I would plant it again. Check out the bloom here on the rainy day.
