In My Garden – Shrub Rose

30 05 2009

I have two Jackson & Perkins Fairy Queen shrub roses planted next to each other. One is light pink while the other is bright red. The bright red shrub was given to me as a Mother’s Day gift back in 2005. The following weekend I picked up the pink one from the dead plant table at Lowes. I think I paid a dollar or two for it.

Together, both shrubs are 2 feet tall by 4 feet wide. I’ve never trimmed the bushes except for the wild branch ever so often. I feed it once a year with a rose fertilizer stake. I have noticed the rabbits eating the blooms this year.
