winchester cathedral

'Winchester Cathedral' opened today, on one of the plants that was a cutting I took last year from the old house. 'Winchester Cathedral' seems to grow faster and stronger from a cutting than just about any other rose I've tried, even 'Iceberg'. For such a short time from growing from a cutting, in this ridiculously nasty climate, I think this is pretty exciting.

Although WC doesn't have a crisp white flower (at least this year), the form of the flower is lovely and it has a very unique fragrance. I like it, but I wouldn't want it to be the only rose fragrance I have. It also mildews rather easily. Still, I'm falling for its charms.
