How's the Mrs. Doing?

How about an update on my only tea rose, Mrs. B. R. Cant? Judging by my success with this rose, teas are among the best for our area. With no spray and minimal care, this rose is thriving and blooming away. I'm looking forward to it getting bigger and better as time goes by.

This picture is of the whole bush. Look at all those blooms! They aren't particularly huge this time of year, but they still put on a show. The fragrance is not especially wonderful to my nose, but the blooms are full and plentiful.

Isn't this a nice bloom? They have that classic rose shape and plenty of petals. The color is a shimmering pink that doesn't seem to fade at all in the sun. Highly recommended for all Southern gardeners.
