Alexandra

Waiting for me this morning, brand new, fresh and lovely, was this Alexandra rose. It's the first one of the season. I planted the shrub around four years ago, and even though Wayside Gardens emphasized its ability to flourish in some shade, we removed a nearby tree in February and the extra sunlight has increased its vigor tremendously. Click on the picture for an enlarged version. The flowers seem to be lit from within. They really glow in the garden.
