seeingreen's Shrub rose 'Summer Song' x 1 Blooming

Plant: Rose (Rosa) | Variety: Summer sun

  • 0
  • Neutral

I was so taken with the colour of this rose that I just couldn’t resist it for this border. Catalogue describes it as burnt orange/copper. It is on the north side of a privet hedge about 4 feet away – hope this is enough that it isn’t drained of water/nutrients by the hedge – but gets sun from east and west as it moves around.

25.3.15 It really isn’t flourishing in this position, I’m going to move it – but where?
