Rosa, 'Old Blush', also known as 'Parsons' Pink China, and by several other names, is a China rose derived from Rosa chinensis, and is generally accepted as the first East Asian rose to reach Europe; this in the mid-eighteenth century.
For the past many weeks my Climbing Old Blush, a sport of the original bush rose, has looked like this:

Glorious to behold.
Now with our recently warm days the blooms are mostly gone. More will follow but nothing to equal the splendor of this. The good thing is that Old Blush blooms for a long time, starting in the winter months then reaching the crescendo you see here in spring.
Gardeners must learn to accept the ephemeral.
Thank you for visiting
