It’s A New Dawn
The sun is finally shining strong this AM and it certainly feels like a new dawn. With the recent rains, the garden was starting to look a bit droopy, particularly the roses in bloom. This morning as I gazed over the grounds, ‘New Dawn’ seemed to be perking up again. This prolific climbing rose is a classic; kind of like an old '55 T-bird. Although this honey of a plant is susceptible to the usual diseases/insects that cause such dilemma with our roses, this variety makes up for any misgivings with its sprawling beauty. Its soft blush color blends nicely with other perennials and is a true treat. Try it with Clematis 'Henryi' for a stunning combination.
This rose can outlive you so it is one of those plants you want to add to your shopping list; that is if you are in this gardening thing for the long haul. I may have mentioned this climber in passing but I have never given this rose its own feature post. And if this doesn’t convince you to add a 'New Dawn' to your garden, then listen to Michael Buble belt this song out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSK9kkM7GL4 If you don’t perk up after listening to this song, then reread yesterday’s post, ‘Checking The Vital Signs.’ Have a great day.
