'Mme. Laurette Messimy' has made an delicate appearance, and 'Love Song' is still holding on. I like this rose more and more every day.
|'Mme. Laurette Messimy'|
"Summer through fall, L.A. Dreamin’ will delight gardeners and onlookers with three gorgeous shades of blooms in deep pink, deep blue, and a lovely mauve combination of the two.
• Huge blooms are set off against shiny, bright green foliage that is nearly translucent when backlit by sunlight.
• Unlike typical ‘mophead’ hydrangeas, L.A. Dreamin’ blooms without any winter protection on both old and new wood. L.A. Dreamin’ blooms under a wide range of soil pH conditions with no extra effort required."
Sounds perfect, doesn't it? I think I'll plant it next to my porch steps.
'Jasmina' is really making up for lost time, and good old 'Iceberg' is full of buds this chilly morning.
Two of the Hortico roses are finally starting to bud- 'Augusta Luise'(aka 'Rachel') and 'Bonita Renaissance'. But the other two are kaput. That's sad because I can't find them anywhere else in the US.
