Dick Clark

Here is a picture of my first rose bloom, which is on my Dick Clark bush. My question is this - I have six healthy looking second year bare roots. This is the only bloom I have, even though a few are close. Is this normal for Eastern West Virginia,Zone 6? Even though I am a newbie rose garden, these roses get ample light and I give them all that I think they need.

Here is a link that might be useful:

First flush here is usually the first week in June. We are early this year, I am in full flush now (a couple of stragglers) and it looks like you are early this year too.

Thanks. It just seems like so many others in my area have lots and lots of blooms. Makes me jealous.

Second year plants are still growing roots. They can take 3+ years to mature, so hang in there!

I'm getting my first flush now. They should start opening the end of this week. I'm not happy about the bud sizes of some plants. I believe it due to that long dry spell we had
