This bush has been blooming like this since before Easter. Non stop. I deadhead it every two or three days. The other 27 rose bushes are not as prolific. We cut down 5 or 6 and will take out three more soon. This one has more than earned its right to stay. Right outside the back door in the dogs fenced garden - i get to admire it many times a day. And when I want to take roses to a friend it never fails me. I have a shelf full of bud vases and bouquet vases ready to fill and deliver.
