Re: Rosa 'Paul's > now ZD
Sounds beautiful...and encouraging, Fran. Our ZDs will have excellent full
sun, great air, and MGs to fertilize and water it. My main concern is that
they won't be watered from below, but rather from a tall cycling sprinkler
head that covers the entire garden. More chance for fungal disease which I
read ZD is prone to.
Re Ceres remark about ZD not being a repeat bloomer - don't know if I
addressed this - the salesperson said it was (also said disease resistant)
and since I had to make a quick choice, I believed her. Time will tell. I
may have to replace them if not.
