Oregon Garden Rose

Since I'm on a roll with roses, I thought this photo that I took of the Oregon Garden rose was stunning out in the front garden. Yes, the Oregon Garden has it's own rose. I purchased one around the time the gardens first opened. It is an outstanding rose, no black-spot, rust, or other problems that you normally run into having roses. The leaves are rich & dark and flowers are big, beautiful, and fragrant.  Walking by the bush you get a strong fragrance of perfumed spices. Actually there are quite a few roses planted here, most are miniature. None of them seem to be bothered by the drought tolerant conditions that they have to live through.
