Ruby Rose

Almost everyone in my family grows beautiful roses, everyone but me.  In years past I have a couple of wild roses that have thrived, but the really big beautiful ones have just never been part of my green thumb.   Last year my older brother gave me a little miniature rose bush for my birthday.  It was so beautiful and my first thought was oh no, it doesn't stand a chance with me.  But I placed it in the bed with my peonies and it has thrived.  Today it is full of blossoms and buds, I am beyond happy.  It's blossoms are small but fragrant and plentiful.  I named her Ruby after my mom.  She is a stunner.
