Of the four roses we have, one died, two have flowered and finished for the year and the final one is now out. It’s another Old English Rose called Rosa “Teasing Georgia”, and it’s quite beautiful.
It’s not as strongly scented as the Gertrude Jekyll rose but more so than the Graham Thomas. I especially like the soft butter-yellow colour that’s light around the edges but turns richer towards the middle.
It’s a shame that the Rosa “Strawberry Hill” (the one that died) won’t be joining the others this year, but I am expecting a bare-root replacement to come through this November. It will be a year behind all the others, but considering the amount of well rotted manure that was dug into the area where it will be planted, it should catch up pretty quickly.
