Rose petals nursery march 2016
5/20/2016- first flower open, but I didn't sniff it! Pink with a little copper shading. 12/18/17- Has not been vigorous at all. 5/17/2018- planted today 6/6/2019- As it turns out, Bassoues Tea loves to bloom! I really like the color variations, and the nice bushy habit of the plant. 9/1/2019- This is a rose that prefers to be in the ground. It was a squatty little thing while potted, but has grown to a bushy 2.5 x 2.5 in one year. I'm really pleased.
