Good morning everyone!
I wanted to introduce you to a new rose bush
the is now blooming in the garden.
Bella’roma is a hybrid tea rose that was added
to my rose garden in late spring and I am loving
its beautiful blooms.
It has a wonderful old rose fragrance and won top
honors as a 2003 Rose of the Year.
It has a yellow bud with pink edges.
I have been fighting the insects this summer that are
determined to eat all of my roses and it is just not the
pesky beetles that are after them.
We have been getting some rain shower this week
which was needed in this area,
so these pictures were taken in between the showers.
As with the Double Delight rose, Bella’roma blooms get
pinker as the bloom ages.
I guess the real test for this rose is if it survives are roller
coaster winters here in Ohio and my gardening efforts.
I have also promised it that I will not move it. LOL!
The foliage is a glossy green and it is suppose to flower
in waves all season. So we will see about this much
wanted trait. It is also suppose to be disease resistant.
The rose was purchased at half price from Edmunds Roses
and came as a bare root rose. I have purchased two roses
from them this year and both were large healthy bushes.
Double Delight rose is having another wave of blooms.
It has a creamy white center while the Bella’roma
has the yellow center.

These roses were added and moved in to replace the
roses bushes that had turned to all red because they
had died back to the Dr. Huey rose which are used
in a few roses for a graft. More replacements will be
added next spring to the rose garden by then I will
also know what has survived the winter.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week and
some of you are getting a little cooler weather.
Happy Gardening Everyone !!
