Late to the Party?

Griffith Buck Rose "Golden Princess" finally bloomed this morning!

The flowers are much smaller, but this girl really looks like "Iobelle." To her credit, of course. Most of the photos I've seen of GP featured the blooms in various states of necrosis. I had to take people's word for it that the rose was pretty. And she is!

To be fair, we got GP as a puny chlorotic gallon from Chamblee's, and she's grown out to the same size as the much-healthier "Distant Drums." She tried to do a small flush in the beginning of July, but the beetles got to it. Just the same, GP is not regarded as one of the healthiest Buck roses. But I'm a sucker for a pretty face. I just hope she doesn't get weird foliar diseases...
