Nearly Wild Rose

5.21 Nearly Wild Rose 1

I bought Nearly Wild rose online. There were two, or was it three, that came as just bareroots. Literally. Just a twig and roots. No dirt.

I soaked them in water to rehydrate. Then planted them.

I like the simple five-petal appearance that makes it look "nearly wild."

Other garden updates.

1 year ago today, Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus.
2 years ago today, I started a series of dumpling posts with J&J (Jin Jian) Restaurant - San Gabriel.


  1. I like the simplicity of the single roses, too. Usually, singles bloom more frequently -- hope yours does well.

  2. Anne,
    This one unfortunately didn't survive. :( My red Paul Ecke Jr. is still going strong though.
