Vanessa Bell - 8Ft +

2 months ago

Year 5 or the roses in the ground. I was previously pruning them short after every bloom as I liked the rounded squat look. This year, I did not prune as hard after every flush...

Vanessa Bell was always the most vigrous and healthiest of my plantings easily by far and now, late summer/early fall, it's at 8 feet tall and mainly pretty vert with most growth putting out strong thick stems and even at 8 ft high, she just sways in the wind with zero flop.

I'm hoping one day the others all seem to catch up but as each year passes, I can see signs of better establishment.
