You know how sometimes you just know? This is one of those times. Like the lady said in “When Harry Met Sally”, you know when you have a good melon, so it goes that you know when you have a good rose. ‘Rose de Rescht’ is a portland/damask blend, a fine reddish-purple coloring (to rival that of ‘Reine des Violettes’ but shhh, don’t tell the Queen of the Violets I said so) a divine fragrance, disease resistant, shade tolerant, and oh, what’s that you say? Repeat bloom? Yes, it’s true. In fact, our tiny little plant, which is currently in it’s second season and growing in a large container, finished her first flush of blooms in May and is already producing another wave of buds (see last photo).
