F.J. Lindheimer Rose, named after a German botanist in the 1800's who lived in Texas.
With the cool weather (high in the 70's but lows in 40's) this rose is yellow/peachy orange.
When it gets hot, it will be a pale apricot.
It is planted in the front facing east and is in the shade in the afternoon.
I love this rose. It was an impulse purchase. The rose was so pretty, smelled good and I liked that it was an old Pioneer rose. It makes a pretty cut flower too. I tend to lean toward Antique roses that are not fussy (my hope anyway). It grows about 4 feet upright and not bushy so it fits nicely in my front garden. Always in bloom and bugs don't seem to like it. I could have called it "Dependable and Pretty".
Hurricane Gustav in 2008 blew it right over, uprooting it and I thought I was going to lose it. It struggled through last summer but this spring is blooming like old times.
Don't you love a happy ending!!?
