Re: flower in bud/Bourbon rose

Well Tony - my mahonia aquifolia (sp?) which is native to your part of
the world and everyone said I was crazy to try looks gr888. Changing
over from pretty burgandy winter color to spring green and yellow
flowers all over! It has done beautifully w/ loving tender care and as
ideal conditions as I can manage in Texas! 4th or 5th year now - I'm so
proud. The downside is the 500,000 hackberry seedlings all along the
tree/shrub line. Like everything else native to this part of the world -
the hackberry grows a taproot to China about 25 minutes after it
germinates. My birdies eat a lot of the berries, but not all! Oh well.
Small price to pay for 9 months of roses! Bought a Reine des Violettes
(Bourbon) rose they were on sale. Jesse will get to help me pick a spot
for it this weekend. I know - I'm nuts. Anyone know the pruning
requirements for a Bourbon rose??

thanks y'all!!
