Old Blush rose photo
Rose photo courtesy of Give me caffeine
The winter blooms seem to last surprisingly well as a cut flower. The shot shows one that I threw in a vase on a whim on Sunday morning. It's now Tuesday evening, so it's been there for three days and is still in excellent shape. Has faded slightly, but otherwise is fine. The red one with it is Gruesome Triplets, which was cut at the same time. It's still holding its shape fairly well but has faded and is starting to blue. Oddly enough, by this stage Old Blush has more scent than Gruesome, which is a complete reverse over the situation when they are freshly cut.

Old Blush, looking remarkably like Archduke Charles. (It's now back to looking like Old Blush. Don't ask me why.)

Here is the whole plant. I got it as an own root bush about 1.5 years ago. So far, so good!! No fragrance, but I love how it presents!

Very nice flowers initially, but they don't last long. Four hours later these were looking distinctly ratty, and this is in cool weather. I expect they'll be "blink and you'll miss it" in the middle of summer. Edit: They turned out to hold on the bush quite well. They just don't look anything like a Hybrid Tea. I've since decided that "ratty" isn't a fair description. Scent is light and fruity, with a hint of rose. However, there's not much of it. You need to get your nose in there and have a good sniff. Still, a pleasant shrub to throw around the garden. I can see myself having a few more eventually.
