“Valentine” — the Rose

Valentine rose in full bloom with more rose petals than leaves

Rose, ‘Valentine’ Nov/Dec 2015

Late November to Early December looked more like Spring than Fall around here! The┬árose “Valentine” has responded with volumes of rose blooms that produce more rose petals than the plant produces leaves! This happens each Spring and lasts until the heat takes over. One of my favorites—Valentine always puts on a great show, tolerates shade, rarely has any issues with foliar diseases (like the fungal blackspot that can devastate many roses) and consistently produces awesome blooms in Spring-like weather!
