      Katxena's Pink Rose x 1 Fertilising

Plant: Rose (Rosa) |

This pink rose grows in the center of my foundation bed, right in front of our front window. I’m not a fan of roses, but my husband likes this plant, so I try to take care of it for him. It’s growing on me because it is consistently healthy, doesn’t need a lot of water, and provides flowers from May to October. It was here when we bought the house — I don’t know what kind of rose it is.

    Thanks Q! There’s a small flower bed right in front of the wall. The rose is in the bed and grows up against the wall. There’s really not much else in the flower bed yet, but I have big plans!

    I’ve owned the house for 4 years. The rose was here when we bought the house. The blooms are pretty big — about 5 inches across. It blooms profusely and nearly constantly from May until September and sometimes October, with a short break of a week or two in late July or early August. It is not a cutting rose, when put in a vase it doesn’t open up as nicely as it does outside and tends to fall apart. It grows huge if I let it — as tall as the first story of my house. It’s consistently healthy. Until this year (when the tent caterpillar showed up), the only pest or disease it’s ever had is a few aphids. I almost never water it. It’s some kind of miracle plant, because it’s so pretty in spite of my neglect.

    The house was a rental before we bought it, so I assume that whatever it is, it’s not anything special or expensive and was probably bought from a big box store or grocery store or someplace like that. I can tell that no one has ever put any effort into the gardens or yards of this house.

    Hmmmm…. It does look like it, but it’s described as having a fruity fragrance. As far as I can tell, this rose doesn’t have any fragrance at all. I will have to pay special attention this year to make sure.
