Hi Karen, what is the name of that rose, please? It has beautiful and unusual colour.

6 Nov, 2012

 

It's Munstead Wood Katarina, a David Austin rose.

mnnn. David Austin. Some of his do well in Vermont. The color is absolutely wonderful. That looks a bit like our Laurel? In the Center. Perfect for the Charity open house we have all over everywhere in the summer. And your house too. Thanks, i love it.

:) You're welcome! :) yes, it's Laurustinus, or Viburnum Tinus Posy. Not absolutely fully hardy I'm afraid, it will be knocked back in a hard winter here.

Hi Karen, thank you for the name of the rose. It is wonderful colour, very unusual. Do not worry about Viburnum tinus. We have frosts here mins 25 Celsius for several weeks in the winter and my Viburnum tinus didnĀ“t die. One secret advice - if you have now a lot of fallen leaves (from fruit trees they are the best), then use them as mulch around this Viburnum. I am sure, it will survive :) Good luck.

Thank you Katarina. I have been doing exactly that will fallen leaves and bark chippings! :)

All finished now except the Viburnum and also some of the Cosmos. They have lasted better than I expected! :)
