This is the very first bloom of this David Austin rose, which I received as a trial plant. It is blooming so low to the ground that it was hidden by the leaf of another plant, and only a chance breeze revealed it. More buds higher up means I will be able to check the fragrance without prostrating myself.
What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
