Gardening in 8b. The rose must have been planted at the foot of an arch several decades ago and has survived with minimal care. For the last two years I've been trying to train it up the arch, but it keeps freezing back. Bloomed in June, not for very long. The wilted flowers stay on for quite a while though and are decorative in their own right. I wouldn't personally buy it though.
14.07.17 Purchased at Rosen Huber and planted into a large plastic pot, roughly 70l, 45cm tall. Styrofoam drainage. Potting soil mixed from rose soil, sand, soil from the garden, cheap flower soil, Seramis, "hornspäne" and 100g Gesal rose fertilizer.
