Rebloom (July 4 2020)
FFE May 18
A very pretty bloom, always well formed. A better photographer with a better camera might be able to capture its color better. In person it plays beautifully across the bloom's texture and isn't as monochrome.
It's been a bad year for rust here but this one hasn't been bothered. There are light traces of the fungus on it but it doesn't have much impact on the bloom or foliage. I'd say resistant but not immune.
Scrapes are tall and strong. Has shown some Increase in a year.
Haven't taken a bud count yet but, while not shabby, isn't super huge either. That's my biggest knock against it, I can't get enough of it.
