And this is the new rosebush i ordered, 'Wildeve'. I choose this one not only for its hardiness(important here in Nevada!) and being suitable for a pot, but also for the name. This little rose bush is for my daughter Evelyn-quite wild indeed! I am enjoying the thoughts of Evelyn wobbling towards the roses with a little watering can and trying to pull the petals off,haha. Here is a description of it from the David Austin website:
"This is a particularly robust and healthy rose, producing long, arching branches which eventually form a bushy, mounding shrub. It flowers freely, with excellent repeating. The flower buds are blush pink at first, later opening to reveal flowers of blush touched with apricot. They form a perfect rosette shape which is distinctly quartered... It is an ideal choice for a prime position in the border or may be grown in a large pot or container. Like most English Roses, Wildeve may be grown in partial shade, providing it is not positioned underneath the branches of a tree... It has a lovely, fresh medium strong fragrance."
