Gardeners' Notes:

Positive BambooSue On Sep 20, 2011, BambooSue from Silver Spring, MD (Zone 7a) wrote:

An unusual color for a rose, kind of a bluish-lavender white. When fully open, the blossom is 2" and has perfect symmetry (looks like a camellia), which is odd because it's not mathematically precise while it is en route to opening.

Smells fantastic, and it dries to a lovely golden color with pink accents. No ugly browns and rusts!

Mine has a touch of blackspot on the lower leaves, which don't seem to bother the plant.

I got mine this spring from John's Miniature Roses as a 2" pot, and now it's 12" tall and bears one big flower at a time.

Purchased 2006 . Was well packaged and shipped. Very few leaf losses at planting. Very healthy. I'm probably pushing it with the zone but we'll see. I will mulch and protect well.
