Are you interested in growing roses but can't decide on just one?
Perhaps you want a yellow rose?
Or a pretty pink?
How about one that's rose colored?
Do you want one that will take your breath away when it's perfect?
Or one that's beautifully less than perfect?
If you said yes to all of the above, I have just the rose for you!
Mrs. Dudley Cross. She starts out yellow, and slowly blushes pink until it covers her whole face.
Her ruby red canes add another layer of mystery and charm.
She's one of my favorites, perhaps because she is so very interesting.
If you're interested in Mrs. Dudley Cross, she is an Old Garden Tea rose from 1907, almost thornless, growing up to 6 ft. tall and wide. She has a nice rounded bush shape. She is a southern lady, growing well in zones 7 through 9, possibly 10. Disease resistant. Blooms repeatedly. Tea scent.
A charming, mysterious lady.
