@little-Ann - supberb pictures love hte yellow rose... they are doing well this year.
@madeleine51.. yes hubbs Dad planted it some odd 20 years ago, (sneaked the seed bod in from Aus when visitng Daughter) no it stays out all year round, rain shine or snow, but mine was looking sick (well hubbys) last year so took the plunge and gave it good hack back, well since then it has blossomed out with loads new branches and flowers, i think they need to be cut back each year to keep good and healthy as they are a plant for hotter climate than ours really. But maybe as we do stay warmer and drier than up country, that might make a difference,
having gone for a stroll today as gorgeous blue skies and sun i have noticed that many others in my area are flowering very very well this year.. i do not understand why because we have had lot of rain.. but then aome parts of aus cant get lots of rain at times.. so maybe it is more like home to them, i do not fully know why.
ALso i have been told it is easy to take cuttings from them.. when fresh new shoots form this year come out cut them and some rooting powerd and pot up, they do fine.. so i will try this this, t his week and let ya know, if they grow i will send you one... i give anything a go when it comes to propergating.
