The Striped Rose

In the past I haven't had much luck with mail ordered plants but my love for striped roses was too strong to overcome and I couldn't find any local so I decided to give it a shot.






Most offerings were red and white, leaning to burgundy and cream (not my bag) so when I came across a pink and white variety called Rosa Mundi from David Austin Roses I decided to go for it.





It doesn't look like much now, a twig basically, but I'll let you know how it goes.
