Slow start - black spotReview by Amy
Rating
I purchased two Blue Skies for planting spring 2017. They came healthy and beautiful from HR but we had such a wet summer! I was plagued with black spot the whole summer. Constant pruning to keep the black spot at bay kept the plants small. Towards August/September when the rain subsided, the blooms came out and I had more cane growth. I'm hoping for better success in 2018. *I followed all of HR's recommendations on planting, fertilizing and treating for black spot* (Posted on 10/23/2017)
A Truly Beautiful Rose! Beautiful!Review by Dixie

This Rose plant took a while to settle in and begin blooming. I was kicking myself because I had not read the reviews. Then, when I did I was pretty discouraged. NOT! This Rose is NOT spindley, it's vigorous and when it finally put on buds it produced at least 6, followed by another 4 or 5. The "blue" is nowhere near Lobelia Blue in my garden, (alkaline) but it is lovely, rather soft Lavenderish Blue/Pink. Light pastel color. Wonderful Tea Rose shaped bud opens to a very high centered bloom. Lasts for days through HOT weather. I am very pleased with this variety. Can't wait until next year for larger and even more blooms!
