Mysterious Rose

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on July 20, 2009

After being gone for over a month, I finally have a little time to dedicate to my poor flowers, herbs & vegetable gardens. One of the things I found most curious was my little Yellow Rose. I get one or two giant gorgeous blossoms from this plant, which the deer love, so I finally had to uproot it and pot it so I could move it around. Here is a picture from earlier this year of one of it’s blooms. When I came home on Saturday, there were these tiny little white buds on the plant, which I thought were rather odd.YellowRose09

What it has turned out to be are these small, frilly, lacey WHITE rose blooms on the same plant that always produced yellow rose. Watching further – today – on the SAME plant, I have a couple yellow roses in full bloom and also two of the small white blooms. Here is a picture of the white blooms;


I’m sure it has something to do with the stress of the plant this year, the heat, the moving to a pot, the inconsistent watering, etc; I haven’t really researched it. But it’s an interesting thing to see both types of blooms on the plant at the same time – my own little mystery!

    Hmmm, that was interesting. Looks like somethings will always remain mystery….
