Seed Swaps

little pink rose      

miniature roses on a 3 foot shrub which blooms heavily June-October in the bed by the lawn, doesn’t get sprayed, and doesn’t get any diseases. Grows fast and needs to be whacked back a couple of times a year.

There are also some other small bushes with little orangy red roses, but they are sort of wimpy and inconspicuous.

After searching on the internet for more like it I think it must be “The fairy” shrub rose

Around Seattle I have noticed a lot of the little pink rose which has escaped into the woods—it tolerates neglect and a fair amount of shade.

This planting is in the old secrets garden .
