Ma Perkins Rose

I bought this Rose  3 years ago when I visited The Antique Rose Emporium in Texas.  
The Roses I bought were ones that were in bloom and I couldn't resist.
Ma Perkins was one.

It is a smallish bush.

It is a pretty  Rose .  And smells nice too.

Funny name, though!

It has not been a spectacular Rose.  Flowers off and on all summer in pretty soft Roses.  Never  has a great show but bugs don't bother it much.  Black Spot can sometimes be a problem more than other Roses in my garden.  It is almost like it has just not taken off.  But three years!   What you see above IS the spring show! 

However, it is pretty enough that I am always delighted when it blooms and have no regrets that it takes up space in my Rose Garden.

Joining Tootsie today to Flaunt my Flowers!
