Polka Dot Rose
This spring I let my emotions get the better of me and I planted a rose that I saw in a pretty picture. It was a new rose introduction named 'Easter Basket'. It was beautiful in the picture.
Usually I try to do some research on roses before I make the commitment, because I know how disappointing a rose that doesn't do well in a particular climate or soil can be.
For some reason my 'Easter Basket' has had these little spots on the petals ever since I put it in the garden. For the life of me I can't figure out what is causing the problem and in all the years I have been growing roses I have never seen it before.
Maybe I just got one with freckles!
