Thanks to the every-other-hour rain we've been getting, my little "Sunrise" rose is in full-on-flower-making mode. It's not making whole bouquets of roses all at once the way the tea roses did, but there's always at least one on the bush. And they smell incredible--perfectly sweet without being too much.
As a bonus, it's little sister (the one I thought was dead on arrival) recovered and has about 5 little buds forming.
So far, so good on the "northern" roses--I'm curious to see how they do once it really gets hot.
