It's a Girl! Welcome my New Rose, Isabella Jurkiewicz.....

I created a new rose.  I am going to name her Isabella Jurkiewicz.  She is a climbing minature.  Her buds look purple like but she is more of a fuschia.   Yesterday, I was doing a lot of gardening (for once) and I came upon her.  I had tried to hybridize roses but came to no avail.  Then one day I saw her in a rose bush that I had moved.

Her parents I believe Johnnie Bear (this is really a gold medal rose) but it was my first rose in this garden and my husband bought it for me for Valentines day...  I call my husband, Johnnie Bear so I called the rose Johnnie Bear
Johnnie Bear

So who is here momma?  Actually Johnnie Bear is but that didn't sound right.  She looks like Stormy Weather.  A purple climber at the museum.  I do believe that her her other parent.



She is obviously on her own root system.  She needs to be sprayed and pruned as all roses do but she is pretty hardy..and hopefully, a repeat bloomer like her parents.





 The rest of the rose garden seems to be taking off....I suppose today I will need to weed...I was gonna post what I did yesterday but when I saw Isabella...I starting jumping for joy...I created a new rose!
Anyway, the rest of the pics are of the rose garden that needs badly tending to...

You can just refer to it as 'Garden Name Isabella' which lets people know it isn't a registered rose. It is a beautiful color.
