Lady Emma Hamilton Rose Update

My Lady Emma Hamilton rose is starting to attain some size. The foliage is very healthy with no signs of foliar diseases. That is quite impressive due to the record-breaking rains and high humidity that we have been hit with all season.

Bugs have eaten holes in some of the older, greener foliage near the base. The newer, burgundy-colored foliage is in great condition. Just look at the warm coloring of the petals. This is the third or fourth bloom since I planted it this spring. There is another bud just behind this flower. Next season I think it will be quite a vision with multiple blooms all at once.

Overall impression so far: Very healthy plant, breathtaking colors, an enticing scent...citrus and lemons! A 5 Star rose as of this point.
