Interesting Notes

Luckily this romantic little mini-climber doesn't take up much space, since its neighbor 'Soaring Spirits' is already hogging so much of my fence. 'Valentine's Day' is perfect for filling in smaller spaces (and would be great in containers), but it's by no means a demure rose. In fact, I'd say it has a bit of a Napoleon complex. It's not just red, it's RED! It's a rose that screams, "Notice me! Fall in love with me! Obsess over me! Buy me diamonds and send me boxes of chocolate and expensive French lingerie!" And believe me, you'll seriously consider doing so.







The long-lasting RED! flowers bloom in large clusters, and are very quick to rebloom. And the rich velvety RED! stays that way, right up until the bitter end, not fading to drab shades of murky purple or burnt black like so many fickle red roses tend to do.







Plant 'Valentine's Day' in a large urn on a balcony with blue violets growing at its feet, and you just might be inspired to compose a love poem. Or at the very least, to finish that sexy box of chocolate truffles you sent it last week.







The buds open a bit darker with cheerful bright sunny gold overtones (reminiscent of 'Graham Thomas'), then gradually soften to the delightful creamy pastel butter color that makes my mouth water. This shade of yellow goes so well with everything, even pinks, but has always been a major challenge to achieve in the garden. Until now I've only been able to provide little bursts with early spring daffodils, or an occasional maverick sunflower that was supposed to be white but turns out to be this wonderful color. I'm elated to finally have it available as a year-round addition to my garden palette.
