Oakland Cemetery Crimson
Purchased from Ebay 10 May 2019

From the listing:
The parent plant was found growing in Oakwood Cemetery in full sun next to the grave of John Bates (1849 - 1910). Austin’s oldest cemetery, also known as Austin's City of the Dead, is the first city owned burial grounds as of the mid-1850s, the exact date unknown. Corpses usually traveled directly from home to the cemetery. When a pauper died in Austin, the city would send for an undertaker, and the undertaker would take the corpse by wagon over to the North side of the cemetery, unload the body and leave it on the ground to be buried (often in unmarked graves). If you had a family and you weren't black or Latino, you were buried on the south side, with some sort of grave marker – perhaps just a plain, wooden remembrance, or maybe a fancy, carved or cast tombstone. In this case, accompanied by this Gorgeous Rose!! 5’ tall and 4’-5’ wide when mature, vigorous grower, no problems from pests or diseases. 2” - 2 1/2” blooms throughout the growing season are crimson red. My guess is that this is some variety of old bourbon Rose. Highly fragrant and lasts well in vases.

Received 25 May 2019 as a tiny well-rooted cutting. I'm looking forward to seeing what it can do!

5/2/2019- planted today near maggie
4/17/2020- This one seems to be growing pretty fast and is stretching those arms out, so very open growth. Some people might not like the weird blooms, but I love it. I like dahlias too, come at me. Current size is about 3w x 2.5h.
