I can actually smell this rose. Does it have a scent? Beautiful picture! I love how you captured the complimentary buds like a florist.
Its easy for me to believe in miracles when science can't explain why a blade of grass has its shape and that is just one plant and one attribute.

Thank you Anita!
It does have a pleasant fragrance, though it doesn't waft far and wide. Have it planted along my driveway so I can enjoy it when I get home from a long day of stuff that smells badly Hilarious!
My favorite part is the color--I never know quite what color it is and it changes so much

So you really must bend down and take a deep breath of rose. Yes that does the soul good. I too enjoy a scented rose and the mysteries of color they put forth. Amazing.

@dirtdorphins A wonderful picture that captures the spirit of the rose and even allows my nose imagination run loose.... Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing . A year later, how did it perform overall (blooms and plantwise)? Thank You!

Hi Arturo--
The rose is doing very well, survived summer and winter, and established itself nicely, for which I am very glad because it was just a barely rooted cutting when I obtained it.
Currently, it's starting it's fall flush--gotta love that Thumbs up
