Archduke Charles may have taken the gold again this year by being first to bloom, but we have a new contender this year in Ducher who has taken the silver by being the second rose to bloom. These delicate, white blooms with a touch of lemon are showstoppers. I look forward to at least 8 months of continual bloom from this wonderful little China rose. If you live in the South, get you one! My sympathies to those of you who live north of zone 6.
