First bloom of the year from the Mystery Rose "Moroccan Rose" that years ago Mike Shoup gave me to trial here in Tampa. It too grows in a large Water Wise Container Garden in response to the perennial drought. Some feel it is a Portland Rose, but here it is a once-bloomer. The scent reminds me of that of a Centifolia but with a touch of Tea rose.

This gem has been here at least four years now, own root and organically grown.
