The rose I am referencing is the Lady Diana. I had never heard of it before. I purchase a lot of my roses from the Baldwin County Co-op. There, the caretaker of plants is a lady named Dina. She used to work at Bellingrath Gardens and probably has forgotten more about roses than I will ever know. I have never been disappointed by a rose bought there.
Here is the rose I bought. It is approximately one foot here and the date shows March. An extremely healthy looking plant and not really in the best spot. It's really sandy here. It was so healthy looking that I felt guilty planting it.
They were throwing some roses away a few weeks ago and I asked if I could have it. Thinking maybe the rootstock would take off. Nothing has happened with it. By the way, JFK rose was also in the bin and mine died. I am starting to think the JFK does not do well as a bare root.
I did not plant my Lady Diana rose as a bare root but I am pretty sure, Dina did. So for all intents and purposes, it is a bare root.
Right now, it's approximately 5 feet! If I want to be conservative it has grown 3 feet in 3 months! I thought climbing golden showers was fast!
I bought it because I wanted something similar to Belinda's Dream, which I do not own.
Unlike a lot of my roses right now, she is extremely healthy. I highly recommend this rose.
Sorry it's hard to differentiate her but she is huge. Her blooms are approximately 3 to 4 inches? Click HERE for more information on this rose. The cane at the top of the picture is going out of the shot.
Another beautiful rose that I do not remember where it is. After I finish screening and irrigating the rose garden I will be diligent in identifying them.
I am so proud of this rose plant. I created it. I can't wait to see what Isabella will look like.
Back yard is slowly being screen
as I develop terret's syndrome. You may be able to see the manifold that will be the hub for irrigation. It the green box.
Ch-ching is doing fabulous. I didn't plant this bare root.
