I like how you left some negative space in the photo. Every bloom is in focus too. Not many multi-bloom shots submitted. Also, love the colors in that rose----I think I'll just hang the photo in my garden until I can get the plant!! If it's not copyrighted.... Thumbs up

It really is a beauty! Is that considered a care-free rose, like the Knock Out series? My Knock Out has no problems at all. No bugs, no spots, just blooms profusely---can't say it's much for re-blooming though.

I think that's a good point, Sheila, about the white space (or analogue). I so often overlook that element when I'm trying to put stuff together.

Nicely done, Dave.

Thanks both of you.

Sheila, it's not as carefree as a knockout or earthkind rose but it definitely is fairly problem free. @Trish maintains the roses for the most part so I'm not sure what all she has to do with it. It does form a pretty dense shrub with what seems like hundreds of canes, and I pretty heavily prune it each winter.

Here's Trish's rose bed from last spring:

You can see the Easy Does It on the left. Hundreds of blooms. Beautiful rose!

I love this rose Dave. This photo made me fall in love with it.
@Trish
Maybe Trish can tell us what she has to do for this rose to look like it does in the photo? I would love to have one in my yard.

Lynn,

This rose is particularly suited for our area. It really thrives in East TX! I don't treat it any differently than any of my other roses.

Thank you for the info Trish. I'll see if I can find one locally this coming spring.
