I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. We have had some very cold mornings here in the hills but the sunshine has been delightful and I was able to enjoy a long walk at Old Mans Cave Park this week with little Aspen leading the way.
Midnight Blue is a shrub rose that has a spicy clove fragrance.
It blooms repeatedly throughout the summer on new growth.
It reaches from 24 to 36 inches in height and makes is a wonderful rose for small spaces or a container.
This rose can also be trained into a standard tree form.
The dark mauve shaded double cupped blooms are beautiful with the showy yellow stamens.
This rose has done very well in my rose garden and is resistant to mildew, rust and black spot. which is wonderful because of this humid Ohio weather that can cause problems with other plants.
It is good in zones 6a through 10b.
The blooms on mine this year tended to fade a little in our very hot and dry summer we had this year but it was still beautiful and smelled delightful.
Everyone have a wonderful week and…..
