The First of the New Roses

The very first bloom opened on one of the antique roses I planted last summer. This is Rosa 'Alfred Colomb', a Hybrid Perpetual bred in France and first introduced in 1865.

The flower is every bit as deeply colored and fragrant as expected, albeit a bit small. Hopefully if the plant keeps growing well future blooms will be bigger.


Thanks for stopping by!
