Rose:   La Reine Victoria

Class:   Bourbon

Date of Introduction:   1872

 

The rich lilac-pink, full, and cupped middle size blooms are produced on a vigorous, slender erect bush almost thornless plant with soft green leaves. It can reach a height of 4 ½ to 5 ½ ft. or can be trained as a climber where it can reach 15’ in each direction. When the canes are pegged over (placed horizontally), this rose responds with lots of lateral growth with long stems. This rose blooms abundantly in mid season with good repeat bloom in the fall where the plant is literally covered with very fragrant 3-3 ½ blooms. A heavy feeder, high nitrogen won’t cause any major maladies. It is winter hardy and very disease resistant.

Tip #23 – Be grateful. Every moment on this earth from the mundane to the amazing is a gift that we are all lucky to share.

Until Next time. Stop and Smell the Roses.
