It's late in the season to be writing about a rose plant. But I just had to.
I saw this rose at a garden center in the spring and decided that I would give it a try. In the past, I have had great luck with the "Carefree" group of roses, particularly Carefree Delight. This rose was a little more coral in color than I typically like, but still, it was a Carefree rose and attractive.
Of course it looked nice when I first planted it (or I wouldn't have purchased it). After awhile however, it started suffering. It did not get blackspot, but it did have quite a few yellow leaves. I sprayed with a fungicide, just in case. Then the Japanese beatles came. I sprayed with an insect killer.Ok, roses are not for the faint hearted, but this type is more maintenance free than many others.
I watered. I fertilized. And I guess it just took awhile to call my home "Home", as now it's happy as can be. I can't wait to see what it will do next year. By the way, of have two and they are both doing equally well.
