Free pinkish rose

That's all I can tell you. The previous homeowner stopped taking care of the yard for the last few years, and it was tall and lanky. When we moved in at the end of September, there were sad looking old pink roses that were falling off. It attacked you as you walked up the walkway to the house so I cut it back to practically nothing.

If you're willing to dig it up (there's a cute bulb-plant emerging in the middle too) it's yours.

I'm located in Bothell/Canyon Park area. Email or message me if you're interested.

Possibly the popular tall Grandiflora rose 'Queen Elizabeth'.

Not that there aren't numbers of other kinds of pink roses that keep blooming late.

This is probably the worst picture ever taken of a rose, but it's in the front left corner of the bed on the right, in front of the smaller rhododendron. The photo was taken the day before halloween and you can still sort of see sad, brownish, rotten blooms hanging on.
