What a beauty! Those petals are exquisitely arranged. You’ve taken a superb photo of this perfect bloom! Well done!
Thanks very much!

Thank’s, Lav. PCDM is my current all time favorite for cutting. If I train her long canes horizontally, she produces many, nice straight, blooming laterals for cutting. I can easily cut 18”-24” stems from these laterals. Now THOSE stems are a sight to behold in an arrangement! Lisa

I'll bet! I can't wait for mine to arrive, thanks again for the inspiration!

I’m in So CA, just north of San Diego. My Princess Charlene de Monaco does just fine here as long as I give it plenty of water. The blooms do fade in the sun, but I cut mine for indoors most often, so that’s not an issue for me. I’ll warn you though, this rose shot up to 12 feet tall in 10 months. I bent most of her canes and attached them to trellises on either sides of the bush. This produced nice long, straight, laterals, each with a perfect bloom at the end. This rose is an arrangers dream! Nice long, straight, strong stems and beautiful blooms that last. The scent is unique and one of my favorites. I like it so much, I’m considering purchasing a second one!

That is incredibly helpful to know! Good thing I now won't plant it in a spot for a 3.5 ft tall rose. Wonder if it would do ok twining around an obelisk?

Maybe, if you start early enough.

I love the yellow in yours. Do you think this is temp or soil related? Mine has never been anything other than soft pink. Lightening a bit as they age. I do love them, but I would love it even more if I got a few blooms like yours once in a while. You have quite a wonderful photo there! Lisa

Thank you! I can't say what might have affected the color. It was in a pot on a very hot patio in all day full sun. Maybe that did it. Unfortunately it didn't winter for me and I lost it.

Too bad it didn't survive. Mine is in full, hot S CA sun, and I have never seen any yellow at all. Anyway, yours was lovely! Lisa

Yellow in old garden roses is not so unusual, turns out! The best example is Salet, the moss rose, which reliably has a strong yellow flush to the petal bases in the early morning, just after it starts to open. I also noticed many albas tend to have an ivory tone to the fresh buds.

Interesting about Salet. I grow it as well, and I’ll look for that yellow next flush.
