The first roses of 2016

Every year we prune and fertilize and wait for the blooms to begin. Every Spring I am surprised by the special blooms that begin my rose growing season. Perhaps they are not the best blooms that will grow in my garden, but they do get all my attention because they are the first after a long, wet winter.

Large pink bloom was sold as ‘Louise Odier’ but has been questioned on a Facebook page. What do you think? Is this what your ‘Louise Odier’ looks like?

The single form bloom is rosa damacina macrophylla.
