Evelyn on Fortuniana

This bush of Evelyn is on an obelisk. I purchased it a few year ago from K and M roses. I had two own root plants also, but they did not do as well here in the heat as the grafted ones did.

    I love it! That's what I need in my climate (on Fortuniana). How tall is that thing? lol

    HOLY MACKEREL! Now that's the most exquisite Evelyn I have ever laid my eyes upon!

    Evelyn is a bush I love, one of my favorite roses, but alas, it doesn't do well for me. Evelyn could not stop making 5' octopus arm canes that bent like a fishing rod with an 8lb. bass on the hook! Her abundant, frequent blooms always put their faces in the mud, like happy little piglets!

    Moses- This one is on an Obelisk, and I think that helps keep it upright to some extent, My husband keeps it pretty well pruned back in February and again in Sept. Remember, in New Orleans, we usually have blooms all the way into December or later depending when we get our first freeze. Even then, our freezes don't last long and don't usually get any lower than 28 degrees for only a few hours.


    Sultry - My husband keeps Evelyn at around 6 to 7 feet. Those pictures were taken in the beginning of the Spring bloom.

    Impressive.

    On Multiflora, in uber-mild coastal SoCal, Evelyn grew 14-ft. tall, and produced perhaps 6 blooms a year.

    Jasmin, i was thinking that Moses is having too much fun but so glad he shared with us :)) Mosses actually described what i got so Spring comes it is definitely getting a prune.
