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.
