Hello! I'm an amateur rose gardener from the Philippines. Currently in college, I buy roses when I save enough from my allowance. My "garden" is a container garden in a bright covered rooftop. I also grow marigolds, basil, lemongrass, and variegated calamansi up there.

I started getting into roses because I was at first, mystified by their ubiquity during Valentine's Day here only to be gone without a trace the day after. My curiosity peaked when I started watching an anime series that had rose motifs all over the place and it was Valentine's by next week, fueling my desire for roses. It was until then that I discovered our local nursery near my university, where I found and bought my first rose, Olympiad. From then on, I kept buying from there and I hope to buy more but sadly, they're closing down by the end of this year. All good things must go I guess. :(

Right now, I'm hoping to breed dark, tropical-loving roses one day so that my country can enjoy their beauty as more than just cut flowers. My greatest ambition is to find a wild, living R. bracteata in my country so I can confirm it being a native rose of the Philippines.

I live in: Philippines

My zone is: 11 (Philippines/tropical)
