Roses > Shrub > Freckles

Modern Shrub rose, by Buck. Purchased from the Uncommon Rose. Planted in Fall of 2003. Another one of Griffith Buck's unique creations. Some of his speckled roses are rather gaudy, but I like 'Freckles'. Very healthy plant with good vigor. A carefree plant. The Hybrid Tea-like flowers are lovely in all stages. This is one of the roses that grew very well during a two year period of neglect between 2007-2009. During this time, the roses in the garden received no pruning, fertilizing, weeding, or supplemental watering. This rose showed no cane dieback or other evidence of disease.

Resistant to blackspot
