Fragrant Lace

Fragrant Lace is a hybrid tea rose, with a blush-pink center fading to white at the edges.  It is fragrant, though not as strongly so as some of my other roses.  In appearance, it compares favorably with the catalog illustration.   Unfortunately, it appears to be a magnet for japanese beetles.  ::sigh::  Here's a shot of a later bloom,

Fragrant Lace has now bloomed in 1999.  Here's are the first few blossoms.

Fragrant Lace was injured by the severe winter of 2003-2004 but has put forth very strong new growth from the bud union and has begun to bloom in late May.

2004 Fragrant Lace

It's now early August; the summer has been cool and very wet and the roses haven't appreciated it.  Some, however, are once again in bloom.

Fragrant Lace was once again badly damaged by the horrid winter of 2004-2005 and I thought it was a goner.  Much to my surprise and delight, new growth came forth from the bud union.  I pruned away all of the dead wood and it's begun to bloom in early June, 2005.

It's 10 July and Fragrant Lace has begun to open more blossoms.  If you look carefully at the bud just starting to open on the right, you'll see one of the accursed Japanese beetles.  Rest assured, it is now a former beetle!

A dusting with Sevin has dealt very effectively with the Japanese beetles.  Here are the opening buds just two days later.

Mid-June and still blooming.  There are now three midget Fragrant Lace plants growing near their parent as it's apparently no longer in commerce and someone asked for cuttings.  It's a rose worth saving!
