"Jo An's Pink Perpetual" from Denver's Fairmount Cemetery is budding up even more, with this new bloom open this morning. The fragrance is intoxicating Old Rose. On one of Fred Boutin's two visits to Denver the parent plant was in bloom.....he agreed with guess on the ID was 'Champion Of The World'. This own root organically grown plant is 5-6 years old in an 18 gallon Water Wise Container Garden on the north side of my home. Lovely Victorian form. I'll be sure to use its pollen on 'Seagull' and 'Dr. Grill' and 'Teasing Georgia' next spring. This and other roses of mine are enjoying the autumn cool down...55 tomorrow night!
