Thomas Affleck

I bought Thomas Affleck from the Antique Rose Emporium. It suggested planting it near the door so you would pass it often and enjoy the fragrance.  I did plant it near the door, at the end of the Herb Bed which is next to the entry walk. There is no fragrance that I can detect, but  it certainly is a pleasure to walk past it several times a day. This is a magnificent rose that requires very little care. It blooms well into the fall, although not quite this exuberantly.

    Galloping Horse – Thomas Affleck was hybridized at the Antique Rose Emporium and named for a local (historical?) cabinet maker. And it doesn’t mind living at 1700 feet on a Massachusetts hill even though he was born in Texas.
