My Last Unknown - a red rose
This is the last rose that came with the house, as I just realized I have not one but two Montezumas. Hee hee.
It is not doing well this year and seems stunted by the cool rainy weather, as well as being chewed, please excuse the holes but I don't spray.
It's medium true red, not orangey or pinky. The petals are ruffly and have a point in the middle of each, which I have never noticed in any other rose. The bloom opens cupped with stamens showing but I wouldn't call it semi-double, it has quite a few petals. Blooms are usually borne in clusters but these are the first few and seem to be one or two per stem. This first pic is true to color.
On this one the color is off but you can see the bud behind better and its form opened one more day...
The plant like I said is small this year and not doing so great but here it is...
The thorns are small and sharp and reddish.
It was planted sometime between 1950 and 1985, probably in the 1970's.
I realize there's not much unique about this rose but hopefully someone has an idea. Thanks.
