Gardeners' Notes:


On Feb 21, 2012, my_gardens_rock from Parkman, OH wrote:

I am giving 'Rose Emily' a positive vote because she performs very well in my NE Ohio garden, although she has been transplanted several times. I call her my chameleon, because color is sometimes peach, sometimes orange, and sometimes pink -- but always pretty.

In NE Ohio, this bleaches out unattractively in full sun. I'm growing it in partial shade under a small tree. The color stays fresher looking there. It has not increased very rapidly, possibly because of the shady location.

Hardy in my zone, blooms in partial shade and I like the light pink turning dark pink near the end of it's bloom time.
