Belle Story Bloom Progression
Per ya'lls advice, I clipped all but one of the buds off my new baby roses, except Belle Story, which was a larger plant (5 gall). There's buds all over her, but this is the first one to full bloom.
I took each photo at about the same time of day, a day apart. I love how the bloom changes from hotpink at the bud to a soft peachy pink as it opens.
I guess I need to go to the nursery and check to see if I need to fertilize again or something, soon... been so busy!!
My bare roots have a few leaves and leaf-buds on them. This one is Cl. Eden (from Austin)
