I've had this rose for almost 4 years now. Saw her at Descanso Gardens and had to have her.

yes! I agree I agree . I think I may need multiples of it.... Sighing! . I got one two years ago. Its still in a bag but ready to go into the ground. It is placed in a partly shady position and it never stopped blooming this past season. It even has the last blooms right now when almost the other roses have been finished for weeks. It is an unpretentious rose but so cheery!

Can someone tell me why my photos are turned side way when I post them. The portrait shots are turned to landscape shots. Confused
Bonica in my garden gets to about 4 x 3. It may have to do with it being in part shade in the afternoon. I'd say she only gets about 5 hours of sun. I gave her lots of room to grow bc I've read reviews that said she will get BIG.

Bonica was the first rose I purchased. It seems to bloom continuously. Here's mine.
