Today, I visited the Green Bay Botanical Gardens. Here, in central Wisconsin, we are close to a half zone colder than Green Bay, easily evidences by foxtail lilies coming in to bloom (and in fact overwintering at all!) and the roses are in full bloom. Other plants growing easily at the garden which I have found difficult here include Helen von Stein lambs ear.
Often roses take more than a year or two to actually achieve their full-blown beauty. By then the tags are gone with the wind, which seemed to be the case with a lot of the plant tags at the GBBG. Excuse me for not being able to identify each of these.
Rose 'Easy Elegance Kiss Me Rose'.
