Now, if they can just make it through these last few freezing nights, we might (after years of waiting), finally see some blooms!
This plant has really struggled to become established and attain some kind of good health. Every summer its leaves are chewed to shreds by bugs, but it looks like its vigor is finally going to win out.
First blooms after a long wait are so exciting!
Edited to note that this rose was not Agatha Incarnata after all.
