pics of first seedling's first bloom
I cannot believe how lucky I got with these mystery rose seeds. I thought they would probably produce boring pink single roses. But the first bloom turned out gorgeous - the outer ring of petals is dark pink, and the other rows are deep purple. It's fragrant too, a lemony-perfume scent. ^_^ I wish I knew what the parent plants were, I wonder if one was an ebb tide or other purple rose.
