So this one got hit by a howling gale the other day. The main stem was tall and rather spindly (came that way from the nursery) and unfortunately got broken off just above the union with the rootstock.
So, I now have a Tea that has unintentionally been pruned drastically. It'll be interesting to see if it sulks as badly as Teas are supposed to when things like this happen. There are two other small branches coming off the base. so hopefully they will pick up the slack and keep going.
The bit that had to be amputated has now been turned into cuttings. Some of them are a bit iffy (figured I might as well use it all) but some should be good to go. With a bit of luck, a nasty accident will result in me having several Delizy's for the price of one.
Anyway the black spot has cleared itself up, so no worries there.
Just received from Green E, on Dr. Huey rootstock since multiflora wasn't available at the moment.
Was somewhat concerned about the combination of Tea scion on Huey in our local acidic clay, but decided to give it a go. The plant has good structure, but is currently afflicted with moderate blackspot. Will have to see how it goes once planted out.
Am not too concerned, because as long as it makes some decent growth I can always take cuttings from it later and grow them on their own roots. I know from other people's experience that this will work well in my local conditions, and will result in healthy plants without requiring spraying.
*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased from Rose Petals Nursery December 2013
8/2014- vigorous so far, but the blooms have all been ugly balled brown things. I originally bought this to put in a tea row in the side yard visible to the public, but I'm having second thoughts...
2/2015- Planted in tea row anyway.
2/28/2017- Size is about 3x3. No complaints, it's been a good rose.
1/3/2018- had a heavy December bloom. Size is 3w by 4h. Dense, shrubby growth.
I would like to purchase this rose. Please email me if you know where I can purchase this rose. Thanks!
