Tea (or china?) rose 'Le Vesuve'

2 years ago

This rose is from a rooted cutting of my old ancient huge LV, which died at over 100 yrs old. Some people think it is a tea, others a china rose. It certainly has traits of both. I don't care what it is, I just love it. This one is now about 15 years old, and is finally getting towards its mature size. It blooms 11 months of the year here, and only sometimes gets a tiny bit of PM if the Spring is very wet. Not a problem this year! Took these pics yesterday - the last 2 are each about half of the bush.
