This is the hybrid tea rose Electron. It is a very vigorous grower, and is one of the few roses that has a very pleasantly fragrant sap, as well as the blossoms. Electric pink and very large, this is a rose that stands out in a crowd!
With the digital camera, I caught the first Electron bloom of 1999 after a heavy rainstorm. The digicam does a better job of showing the vibrant pink of this rose. Even waterlogged, it's beautiful!
One of the nice features of Electron is that it's a prodigious bloomer; the cluster above was captured during mid-July, and is typical of what this bush will produce right through until the first frost.
It's now mid-September, 1999, and Electron is once more putting out a beautiful flush of roses.
We're now well into October, but Electron just keeps on going!
Mid-November, and Electron gives us one last blossom to remember it by!
After a six-month rest, Electron is back in production, mid-May, 2000.
It's late May, 2001, and Electron has begun to bloom.
Electron has begun to bloom, May, 2002.
Electron has begun to bloom in 2003, a little later than usual.
Sad to say, Electron succumbed to the brutal winter of 2003-2004. This was a shock to me as I've had it for ten years and it's taken everything Mother Nature could throw at it and come back strong as ever each spring. This was the rose at my front steps, that greeted me every day, and I will miss it.
