The First Rose of Summer

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.
