Oscar Peterson Rose
We just planted a few new roses in a newly landscaped area in our backyard. This new area is now complete, except for a few little staining projects to finish on the deck. The weather has cooled down, and it’s raining, which is such a blessing. It’s been a rough week.
We have a handful of Knock Out roses, but this new rose is something else.
When I first saw it, it appeared to look just like a Knock Out rose. Once the flowers opened, we were all in awe of this splendid flower.
The blooms are a stunning creamy white with a yellow center. They put out many blooms at one time too. What’s more, we don’t have any flowers in the landscaping this color.
You may be wondering about the name of this rose; it’s named after a famous Canadian Jazz musician, Oscar Peterson. How cool is that?
Here’s a photo of the tag if you’d like to locate one for yourself.
I thought the price was a little high, but for something that comes back every year and blooms all summer into fall, it’s worth every penny.
Thanks for checking out Flower Friday! What do you have blooming this week? Have a wonderful weekend!
