Are my roses doing okay?
I'm in Zone 9, Phoenix area, where it's in the 80's during the day and 50s-60s at night right now.
The photo is of my little Shockwave yellow roses about a week ago. I bought it as a very small young plant a few months ago. It grew these three yellow flowers and kept them for about two weeks. Now they are gone, and I don't see any other buds.
It has another young friend, a larger orange Marmalade Skies. It started larger, grew faster, and has had lots of little green buds for a few weeks, but it was only just today that I saw a little sliver of orange on one of the buds.
Are they behaving as expected? My 20+ year old mystery rose bush (I just posted about it in Name That Rose!) has had flowers for about three weeks.
