2nd year bush, very first blooms. It didnt flower last year at all. This year it has around 30 buds on it.
2nd year bush first flush. I was worried about this bush. Because I dug it and transplanted the entire bush. All 8 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide of it. It lost all its leaves. And was completely bare for quite a long time. But it finally started to leaf out. And bud up. I should've cut it back before digging it up. But I had it run through a homemade built trellis supporting the long 8ft long canes. And it was woven between the boards.
2nd year bush. It's getting really big. It's almost 6ft tall. Very upright growth. It has tons of new canes and buds. It's been very happy. Even after being dug up and relocated. It nvr missed a beat.
This rose bush has been severally neglected its entire life. And barely bloomed the last few years. It's over 10 years old. I started taken care of it when we moved in. Trimmed all the dead wood off, and gave it some good top soil dressing and good food. And it has exploded with growth this year. Covered in buds everywhere. Has 10 new big canes. Very soft and ruffled petals. But virtually no scent.
Our unknown once blooming Old English bloom shaped bush. This is still a NOID and havent been able to find out. It smells so amazing. Its extremely strong scented. Ot kindve reminds me of the scent that Chrysler Imperial smells like. I hope eventually one day I can figure out what called.
