The foliage from SP was left over from last year and looks like every dog in the county used it for target practice.
A lot of energy was going into the fat buds so now they are gone. Hopefully, It will shape up.
Nice! Who are his friends...?
Olympiad and Duchess de Brubant.
Your St. Patrick roses are lovely, also their companions.
Oh so lovely!!!!
I had that rose in the ground back when I had NO CLUE as to overwintering roses. Of course, it's a very tender rose. But, anyway, the summer that I had it - it was a bloom machine. So many gorgeous flowers. Of course mine weren't as green as yours were - we didn't get the heat needed. So it's really nice to see the green that you have on yours. Really lovely.
Hope your rose does well, despite the dogs. Bad dogs!!
Your St Patrick is gorgeous. I've always loved the colors of this rose and was thinking of buying it but after the brutal winter we just had I'm a bit skeptical about its chances of surviving the bitter cold. My roses go into pots & I no longer drag them into the garage in December. I use seil's method of winter protection (leaves for warmth, then sort of wrap the pots with burlap) & hope for the best.
I lost some hybrid teas but am so grateful that my Austins all made it. I don't have much room left so any rose I get at this point has to be winter-hardy.
But boy, what a beautiful rose!
That's the color I love on St. Patrick. Nice!

Beautiful...thanks for sharing!
They can really hang in there for vase life!!
