Sunblest Rose: Unexpected Flower Bud

I was watering my backyard garden this early autumn evening and was delightedly surprised to find a flower bud along the middle of one of the older canes of my Sunblest rose plant. A very hardy and reliable hybrid tea, this particular cane has not had the easiest time and has been pruned back several times but it fights back as if to say, “I’m still here!” in glorious defiance. A good lesson in life: don’t give up!IMG_3270

This rose plant has thrived in this location, and while most of the roses have dotted the furthermost and newest-growth parts of their canes, it’s when rose buds show up in these rather unexpected places that stir up new interest and excitement for me. The plant is now also taller than I am, which makes me very happy!

The flowers are large and vibrant yellow. More information on this fantastic rose can be found here:
