Here is another one of my roses for you to meet. I'd like to introduce Old Blush. I did my research and found out that it was an easy one to grow in the South. I used to grow roses in Southern California, but growing roses in the South is a completely different proposition.
I chose Old Blush because I wanted one that would bloom a lot and would take some shade. It never has done really well for me, but I am not sure why. This Spring, it seemed like this was going to be the best year yet for it. But...
Once again, like previous Springs, it is being eaten. And by an unlikely suspect. I have never heard of this before, but every year these small bumble bees love to eat the buds and flowers of Old Blush. This picture shows 4 bees on the blooms, but later there were six, all chowing down. I don't think the poor flowers have a chance.
Have a beautiful day!
SOMETIMES YOU JUST GET LUCKY
