Rose 'Bonica'


By Anget

Rose 'Bonica'

I have a dilemma. This rose flowers prolifically, as can be seen, and is well-behaved, good disease resistance, and well shaped. But I can't bring myself to like it as the pink sets my teeth on edge! Do I remove it or is it a case of 'gift horses'?

Pink sets your teeth on edge??

No point in keeping it if you don't like it. Or perhps grow another colour near it say a blue or a wine red?

I like it, looks very pretty. However, if it’s not your cup of tea...

M'land, it's a very sickly, bright sugar pink to my eye... The pic. is softer hue. P'raps it's the other colours around it that need changing..
Thanks for your opinions.

I love the colour pink and this shade looks quite delicate in the photo.
It is trying hard for you :-)

I know, W'rose, that's why I feel guilty about wanting to take it out!!
