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.

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.

RE: Dick Clark

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

RE: Dick Clark

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

RE: Dick Clark

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
