Pink Rose of Steel!

It's hard to believe that this bloom survived 3 days worth of torrential rain and still looks beautiful.

Of course Allegra, as a hybrid Gallica, is a once-bloomer. She's 18 inches tall in her first spring ( I planted her last September) and has one more bud to open after this one. Then that's it for the year!

Her flower is about the same size, but the shape isn't quite the same as Marianne's. I think she looks like a pink ranunculus!

Would you believe that Rook hasn't even set buds yet?

Would you believe that our one-year-old Madame Hardy is 52 inches tall?
