Wild rose rootstock

Wild rose

A couple of years ago I bought an elegant, pure white standard rose to add a touch of class to the flowerbed.

Unfortunately it proved terminally sickly in terms of what it was supposed to be, while at the same time producing some very healthy suckers.

In the end I gave up on it but allowed its suckers to turn into a little bush in their own right.

Last year the rootstock had its first couple of blooms, and this year there are a large number of buds of which this is the first to open.

It won’t be elegant exactly, but there is definitely something to be said for wild roses.
