Here is a May 27 2008 low res photo of rosa gallica officinalis from my home garden.
Nice rose! Do you still have these roses?
Yes! They bloomed about 1-2 weeks earlier this year. But they are all still there.
Wow - love the contrast of colors - the wide swathe of yellow is so bold.
This is the parent bush to the sport/hybrid for which I posted 2010 photos. Kathy
