I had this one years ago and decided it was time to replace it this spring.
Seil - You know I have to comment on this one, that is gorgeous! The bud looks like perfection, the opened bloom too. Very nice.
Luuuuuv this rose. Mine is such a good bloomer!
Melts my heart every time....
Also has wonderful fragrance :)
When did you take this picture? It's really a nice bloom if it's opened at this season. What is the particular reason you want to replace it?
The summer temperature in the Southern Nevada where I am living, is around 100 FÃÂ°~115 FÃÂ° day temperature and the air is super dry. It only gives us about half day to enjoy the real nice bloom, it is burned after the sizzling noon, no matter what variety they are!
P.S. If I am not wrong, the second picture look like has infested by spider mites, do they bothering you?
Peter, I had Pink Peace many years ago and it died off one winter. This is the one I bought this spring to replace it with.
Yes, it is blooming now. In Michigan it's the height of rose season and most of my roses are blooming. Things are doing pretty well considering the long cold spring we had.
As far as I can tell I do not have spider mites on any of my roses. I do have some pretty big spiders that like to make webs between the pots though. I don't bother much with them because they help keep a lot of the bad bug populations down. But I don't see any in that picture.
You are right, Seil!
After I zoomed 200 % to see more clear the picture,the web like white dots on the petal are water drops.
Good job! Congratulations!
