Hmmmmmmmm, if thats love lies bleeding, then what do you call what i have growing? It's tall green stalks, with little pink like beads hanging down from the stems?? Anyone know? Wish my camera was working.

Interesting! I didn't realize that there were other forms of love-lies-bleeding. I like the tassles on this one. Thanks for posting it. Is it in a public heirloom rose garden?

These are a bit different than the ones I grow here in OK. I've attached a photo of one of my 2003 plants. I've always loved them!

Hmmmm, mine grew about 6-7 ft. tall and had those wonderful light pink tails hanging down! Could it be kiss me over the garden gate?? I will have to look that one up.

Pony Tails was an unexpected beauty that I bought from the Territorial Seed CO. It was just what I needed in this heirloom rose garden that was a little absent of drama in the late summer.
