Ducher Wins the Silver Again
For the second year in a row, Ducher is the second to bloom. It bloomed only a couple days after Archduke Charles. I'm looking forward to this bush being covered in bloom in a couple of weeks. Like the other china roses, this one loves Louisiana and thrives with virtually no care at all. The form of the plant is rounded, full, and pleasing. It is seldom bothered by blackspot in my yard, even without spraying. Anyone wanting a white rose could not hope for a better plant than this one. It also has a lemony scent that is very fresh, though light.
