Rosa ‘Lyda’

One year I visited a rose gardener in Corallitos named Kleine Lettunich. Her garden is quite wonderful & her breeding efforts (mainly by keeping an eye on volunteer roses coming up in her yard) have produced some very nice roses. ‘Lyda’ is one of them. It is nice & compact, growing to 3-4.’ The first year I planted it in sun & it was very disappointing, the colors all washed out. But when I replanted it in the shade, it suddenly developed the nice pink & red edges. A good shade rose is hard to find, but this is it. It blooms continuously, has been completely free of diseases, does not appear to need any additional water & has very pleasant light honey scent just as it opens. I highly recommend it.
