Pink Promise is the official rose of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and ours is a survivor. We put in six new Jackson and Perkins roses in a new bed in 2009, and Pink Promise is the only one that is thriving after the sub-zero temperatures in February.
We didn’t plant sunflowers this year but we have some coming back from last year’s seeds. We thought they were hybrids, so we are surprised they are coming back as the same sunflowers from their seeds.
Our Ronald Reagan rose is trying to come back from the cold winter. I think this is the first bloom he’s managed to put on. His rose is red and white with a slight hint of blue.
Unfortunately, we lost both of our Nancy Reagan bushes to the cold. She produced beautiful peach colored roses.
