Growing Roses in My Utah GardenGrowing Roses in My Utah Garden
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.

This rose varies a great deal in my garden. One wet spring the bloom was fantastic....Show quality. Most of the time, though, it isn't that exciting...kind of "Plain Jane.' I've been going to dig it up and discard it, but every time one thing stops me...the fragrance. It smells the way a rose should smell and I can often detect the fragrance a few feet away. Wonderful, but not overwhelming. Fragrance alone earns its place in my garden.
