*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. No spray garden. ***
Purchased from Angel Gardens August 2016
Note: I'm assuming that this is Etoile de Lyon- I see nothing in the plant that tells me that is wrong.
3/5/2018- planted in large rectangle 8/3/2019- I'm really not crazy about this rose. The plant itself is wonderful, nice and bushy, no disease that I've noticed, but the blooms are continuously ugly and brown. No, I'm not willing to perform any magic tricks or mix any potions to make each bloom do the right thing. This rose is receiving the Eye of Sauron.
