I have a new rose in my garden,her name is Sharifa Asma. She is an Old English rose ,a David Austin rose. My herb garden has 4 beds and in the one closest to my kitchen steps ,I am going to have 5 Old Rose bushes.I have a lot to learn about roses ,and this year is my Year of Getting to know Roses! Sharifa is my first.I chose her as her scent is beyond heavenly.A deep ,fruity rosy perfume.She is also a beautiful pale pink blushing sort of rose.
When her blooms are full blown they are huge flouncy tutus .I have already had one full bloom.I think she will live up to her rather exotic name!
