This rose is one of my most treasured plants. I have no idea of the name of this rose. I do know that it is extremely hardy , very fragrant and it is a climbing rose. I found this rose on an abandoned homestead in Oklahoma. I took several cuttings from the enormous mother plant that was climbing up and thru some very old trees and had been left on it's own for many many years. To my great delight, all of my cuttings grew roots and I established a very healthy small bush in my garden in Oklahoma. (Yep, I can now officially add the talent of Rose Rustler to my resume!!)Two years later we found that we were moving back to the East Coast and I vowed that my rose bush was coming with us. I dug it up and after 5 years in her new home and blooming moderatley well, she is blooming her fool head off!! WHooo Hoooo!!! The very best kind of garden success!!!!
these blooms are from my Gertrude Jekyl rose bush and are also extrememly fragrant. I don't even bother with roses that are not wonderfully fragrant!!!
By the way, the berries are juicy and delicious!!!!
Have a wonderfully artistic week!
