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.

I bought this rose a few years ago from Edmunds. The catalog stated that it likes cool British summers but it has been happy here in Utah. The buds start out with nice classic HT form but finish looking more like an English rose. It holds well and has gentle but attractive coloring. I'm always pleased with it. Nice medium size bush and good repeat.
