Rugosa "Agnes"

I thought I pinched off the buds of the roses that were delivered early this month. I guess I was wrong.  “Agnes” a rugosa from High Country Roses is hardly more than a foot tall, but she has two more buds. I better  pinch them off.  I want this new rose on the Rose Bank to put all its strength into good roots.  Yellow is a very unusual color for rugosas. I hope it will be hardy. Many yellow roses have less stamina than the familiar reds and pinks.

    It’s so hard to bring yourself to debud. I’m glad you got one look though…quite pretty!

    Yellow roses are my sentimental favorites. Grow little yellow rose!
