I always enjoy having roses blooming in November.
My Mister Lincoln rose bush is over nine feet tall now and it is difficult to see the roses at the top. I had to pull this bloom down so that I could smell the wonderful fragrance.
My yellow floribunda still has a lot of buds on it. This bush will sometime even be blooming in January.
There is currently only one bloom open on my Tropicana rose bush, but there are several buds that are opening.
I still have a lot of blooms on my St. Patrick rose bush.
I was surprised to find a honey bee on one of my blooms. I don’t often see them in my rose garden and definitely not this late in the year.
I am wondering tonight how long it will be until pruning time. With it being 2020 it will be difficult to predict since weather patterns are so different this year.
What’s your regiment of taking care of these beautiful roses !
Good location, well watered, good weather. Not too much work except to clean off spent blooms and pruning once a year. Perhaps it is in the genes with Grandpa working in a nursery.
