*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased from Murphy's Roses Sep 2012. I'm really liking this rose!
Apr 2014- planted in serious shade. Gets maybe an hour? Of sun a day. I will move it if it does too badly.
7/3/2014- Sun increased by a few hours, and plant has done really well. Blooms constantly, no disease or other problems. Vigorous. Currently about 4 feet high by five feet wide. Flushing with 40+ blooms.
4/9/2015- Plant is about 5x5 now, blooms very frequently. Winter flowers are very large and pretty.
10/6/2015- plant is reaching for the top of my eight foot fence, and is easily just as wide. I absolutely love this rose.
4/2016- Heavy rains and hail damaged Trinity, so I went ahead and gave it a deep pruning. It was 9 feet tall and about 10 feet wide, and is now 5 x 5. I hope he doesn't have a cow...
5/30/2016- Didn't mind being pruned at all. Blooming like mad.
Note: Not heavily thorned, though I wouldn't call it thornless. Also, this isn't one that I can smell.
