Odd bloom on Darcy Bussell
So I have been excitedly watching a new crop of buds that recently popped up on my potted Darcy Bussell, the first one bloomed today and it was a little suprise. It is oddly single, still fragrant and lovely, but with a low petal count. This rose lives in a huge pot, with great soil and regular watering, it gets about 5 1/2 hours of morning sun a day because it is on my porch. My only guess would be maybe it isn't getting enough sun? Or is this common behavior for a rose in the middle of summer? I have had this rose since may, I purchased it as a very healthy 4 gallon plant from my local nursery. It has been in the same location the whole time I have had it and has had a pretty regular repeat the whole time, she seems to be a very healthy rose with great re-bloom, one of my best. I am just wondering if this will be a reoccurring thing, I guess I'll just have to wait for the rest of these buds to mature.
Thanks for any input!
