A Rose Is A Rose

Friday, May 15, 2015

I have 4 rosebushes; pink, white, red, and pink. They are approximately 20 years old. All except the red one. It is only 3 years old. I had a yellow one that winter killed. So I replaced it with a beautiful, red, Abe Lincoln (long stemmed) Well, the white bush just started blooming last week. And boy was I surprised to see white roses and red roses on my white rosebush. Anybodoy know what is going on???????

    It's fairly common for a rose bush to really be made out of 2 plants. The root stock is picked for one set of attributes, like being hearty. The top part is picked for its looks. If the red roses are on a branch that starts down low, I would guess that the root stock pushed out a branch and is making flowers too. How fun to have a multicolored rosebush!

    Sounds like cross pollination by either bees or the wind. Are the two bushes close to each other? I'm not a rose expert, but enjoy the interesting blooms and see what happens next year. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing! I love to look at flowers but I am not good at gardening. Hence, I have no idea what is going on.

    Take care & have another blessed day! emoticon
