'Safrano' Tea Rose

This early Tea is one of my favorites due to its soft apricot color and role as a potent parent of lovely roses to come after it. I lost my in-ground one years ago once the drought and severe watering restrictions became the norm here, but after a few months in a buried 5 gallon Water Wise Container Garden this little baby has leapt into growth with very few waterings....my water bill last month was $9.10 due in part to my growing much of my food and nearly all my roses in Water Wise Container Gardens even though I showered many times indoors due to cold weather, and despite my doing a few deep watering of large scale planting of Rapes to feed to my poultry.
