Dr. Huey

This rose was a total surprise for me.  When the Tropicana standard died, I hauled out what I could but didn't bother digging out the last of the standard stalk or the roots as the area had been taken over by Red Ribbons and I wasn't planning on planting again there in any case.  I did note last year that suckers were coming up from the roots and mixing in with Red Ribbons.  It's now mid-May 2006 and for a few weeks I've noticed that in with Red Ribbons at that location, I appear to have a different rose, with a different growth habit and different leaves.  Today it opened its first flowers and I find that, though they're more purple than photos I've seen on the web, it's pretty clearly Dr. Huey, which is used as a rootstock.  It's a pleasant small flower and compliments Red Ribbons nicely so, even though it's not something that I would have planted, it can stay.
