Gardeners' Notes:

Positive wasbloomin On May 8, 2014, wasbloomin from Echo, LA wrote:

Buds are very slow to open but the trade off is that the large ruffled blooms last a very long time on the bush or cut. Very healthy, disease free and thornless. Love it!

Beautiful, very large blooms of buttery lemon, ageing to pink. Healthy, vigorous plant. One of my favourites.
