The Folksinger Rose is covered in stunning fragrant buttery yellow flowers with yellow eyes and peach centers at the ends of the stems from late spring to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has green foliage throughout the season. The oval compound leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color and the fruit is not ornamentally significant.

This rose requires occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. It will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. Its foliage tends to remain dense right to the ground, not requiring facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This rose should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

Graham Thomas Rose

July 3, 2014

Graham Thomas rose was bred by David Austin in the United Kingdom in 1983. It is named after Graham Stuart Thomas, a British Old Rose expert. This is a bright yellow rose with the old rose shape. The cup shaped flowers are of medium size with fat buds and a radiant golden yellow.  There is a medium-strong, fresh tea rose fragrance and a hint of spice, with a cool violet character typical of its color group. It has attractive smooth green foliage and repeats flowering from early summer onwards.

This is one of the most widely sought-after of the English Roses. Although classified as a shrub rose, it tends to grow more vigorously and can be used as a sprawling climber in warm climates. Like other English roses, it offers the old-fashioned form and fragrance of old roses and the repeat-bloom characteristic of modern roses.

This variety was voted The World’s Favorite Rose by members of the 41 National Rose Societies worldwide. It also won the James Mason Award from the RNRS in 2000.

Fuchsia Plants

May 7, 2014

Named after German botanist, Leonhard Fuchs, fuchsia is a genus of flowering plants that consists mostly of small trees or shrubs. The plant was discovered on Hispaniola, an island in the Caribbean around 1696 by Charles Plumier, a French monk.

Fuchsias have deep green, heavily veined leaves that can either be deciduous or evergreen depending on the species. The pendulous flowers are very attractive; they have long tubes with flared sepals and contrasting coloured sepals occurring mostly in shades of white, purple and pink. The fruit of the fuchsia species is edible and is said to taste like citrus and pepper. It can be made into jams however fruits of some fuchsia species leave a bad aftertaste.

SOURCE

Fuchsias are grown for their attractive flowers; there are currently 100 recognized species with a vast majority of them native to South America. A few occur north through Central America and to Mexico. There are also several species from New Zealand to Tahiti. With the decorative flowers of fuchsias and lush foliage, they offer tremendous ornamental qualities and are often ideal for hedges, containers and hanging baskets.

SOURCE

All fuchsias have the same care routine. For fuchsias grown in the garden use fertile, moist but well-drained soil is advised and shelter from cold and drying winds. For fuchsias grown in containers, use a loam-based potting compost or peat-free multipurpose compost. Fuchsias prefer shade during the hottest part of the day and do not like excessive water.
