25 JUN
June 25, 2019: Bought a very large potted plant of "Perfume Breeze" from a nearby Home Depot. It had a few overblown blooms on it; I didn't notice any particular fragrance, but it was evening and my allergies are bad this time of year. The plant had a bit of blackspot on a few leaves, but it had been crowded together with the other roses at the store, so I'm sure that probably didn't help. (Plus, EVERYTHING gets blackspot in MD.) I put the pot in the backyard and watered it well. I don't know when I'll have time to plant it; I still have to put together the obelisk it will be occupying. It's supposed to be 90+ degrees F here for the next few days, so I'll make sure it doesn't dry out.

First impressions: VERY prickly! Reminds me a lot of a hybrid musk in habit. I'll check to see whether it's own-root or budded when I transplant it.
