Darlow's Enigma-------Finally some blooms

zeffyrose_pa6b7(6b7)June 3, 2010

I've had DE for 11 years---it was in the shade for a couple of years and then moved it to a spot that gets morning sun and finally after lots of Alfafa and Rosetone----it is blooming---and hopefully will grow---

It has a lovely fragrance

The shots in the base are spectacular!! Talk about bright yellow stamens - and they're so long!!

Glad to see it's coming along! Nice looking rose Florence!
Maybe it's new location & some Alfalfa will be what it needs.

Love seeing your photos of Darlow's Enigma, Florence!! Mine hasn't bloomed yet, and I adore this rose so this is a real treat for me. Thanks! Hope yours grows well for you. :)
