A Bit O' the Irish


No, I haven't doctored the color on this photo. This photo is "as shot". That's the real color of my Irish Creme rose. Isn't it "yummy"?

This rosebush went in last year and has been slower than most in growing and producing. After I purchased it I happened to notice the fine print that said it is a "cool weather rose". Oops! I had to find a cooler spot in the front garden for it where it's sheltered from the scorching heat of our summer afternoons and evenings. It is fairing better than I expected and this bloom is the first "true" bloom it has produced. I think it's a great specimen so I had to share it.

  1. I was getting ready to start begging you for information regarding where to get one. You brought me to a screaching halt with cool area rose. Nope, won't work here. It sure is pretty.

  4. How unusual. I can't decide whether this rose is a dusty gray peach, or a beigy Dreamsickle shade. I guess Irish Creme is probably the best description!

  9. What a beautiful rose! Irish Creme, huh?

    I am back from my English adventure and will post after I get all my photos uploaded. But I wanted to pop over and see what you've been up to while I was gone.
