|'Dolly's Forever Rose'|
It is to the latter group that I'm dedicating this posting. Several new little pretties have responded to the cooler September temperatures and I thought I would throw out a few little teasers in advance of future rose posts. I'll let all these little guys get bigger, probably into late next season, before I show you their full glory, but I'm so excited that I just can't keep them secret.
Another Barden rose that I'm tickled to grow is 'Dragon's Blood'. This russet floribunda has small individual blooms, but the orange-red-rust color is eye-catching. Freely-blooming and covered in healthy foliage, I placed 'Dragon's Blood' in a prime place for visitors. At a prominent corner, they can watch the dusty hues (see the photo below) of each petal as they age and darken.
Well, there you have them; a few glimpses of next year's tantalizing offerings. Are you teased enough yet to stay tuned?
