General Gallieni...what a beauty!!
The sun was setting and all I had was my phone (camera) sorry the pictures aren't great...but the colors show.
I'm still struggling to grow it here, but I think it's among the loveliest of Teas.
Coastal Ventura Co., SoCal
Phone or not, those are beautiful pictures of a beautiful rose, Rhonda!
I posted a picture of my General on another thread, but I'll repost. :)
He is the first to bloom in my garden. I cut a few this morning with some azaelea :^) ...
I saw my first good blooms of GG earlier this spring, and I was blown away. The petals are totally different from any flower I have ever seen. They look like stained glass - kind of shiny and translucent. Yours is gorgeous, Ronda.

Has anyone had success growing General Gallieni in MI, zone 5? I'd really like to try it.
