This beautiful rose bush is 15 years old it is planted next to the south side of our log home and gets plenty of great sun. It stands 5-1/2 feet tall, even though we keep trimming it down every year. The Thorns are 1 inch long and very thick you don't want to fall into this bush. Besides it's amazing roses, which bloom in Early June and late August, it grows hundreds of roses at one time.
I call it a Bride Bouquet because of how stunning it in in real life.
My pink peony is still blooming such a hearty plant and it is only one year old.
