Charles de Mills.


Some people call him the king of the antique roses. I got this rose as a small plant last summer, and expected to not see a bloom for several years.

Well, I guess that CdM likes it here, because he put out four fat buds this season. The first one opened today in the pouring rain...=_= I don't think it's unfurled all the way, but isn't it beautiful? Not much of a fragrance, though...

The first CdM plant I got as an undersized band in 2012 died after a month. I'm glad I decided to give him another chance. I hear he can be invasive, but I wouldn't mind him taking over the yard!
