Simplicity-Even a bad rose sometimes can be good

Kippy(SoCal zone 10. Sunset Zone 24)April 21, 2014

Simplicity is overall a rose best skipped. But it has found the one spot it is happy in our garden. I had tried to move a part of it and it was almost unrecognizable as a rose for the mildew and rust and was growing backwards quickly.

I put that part back with the rest and it is happy again

It gets some extra reflected heat from that wall, no sun til about 11 and end of the day shade

Well, good! It looks so pretty against the white fence. It's not getting a lot of sun, but apparently it's enough.

It's lovely! Simplicity was the KO of it's day. I've always thought it was much prettier that KOs.
