This little Wild Rose bush has been with me for over 16 years.
We picked it up towards the end of the summer planting season. It was on clearance, and it wasn't looking too strong or healthy. For the price I took it home with me.
She has bloomed ever since I put her in the ground - including that first season.
The buds are so tiny, and there are many on each branch. When they open, they are the most vibrant pink with little white centers. They only last a couple of days until they begin to fade and the petals drop off. Surprisingly, there is no scent to these roses.
She is in full bloom right now and is absolutely gorgeous. She has new buds appearing and will continue to bloom on a much smaller scale during the entire summer.
This little bush has brought much joy over the years!
