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!

    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.
