Red Ribbons

Red Ribbons

Red Ribbons is one of the new landscape (groundcover) roses.   It is supposed to grow to about 1.5 ft tall and about 5 ft across.  It produces single red blossoms with yellow stamens.  The shrub is self-cleaning, and resists most diseases and pests.  While lacking fragrance, it is an easy way to beautify the understory of taller shrubs.  In 1999, it has climbed to more than 3 feet tall, and more than 7 feet across, almost too large to be called a ground cover!

Red Ribbons has been putting on a show all summer long and well into the fall.  It's now mid-October, the leaves are turning yellow and starting to fall, but the blossoms keep coming!  (The new digital camera appears to have the same problem getting the reds "right" as all of the other cameras.  ::sigh:
