Instead of Green I Got Roses

I was going to write a post on my Lady Banks failure to put out roses and I went out to take a photo of it for a demo and I got a mayor surprise I was seeing tons of buds all over the branches. Then Maegan said look at the pretty flower.  Wow and I was going to complain that my roses were staying green, but instead of green I got Roses.

This rose is a native to central China and was grown there for hundreds of years it was brought to Europe by William Kerr who was on a plant hunting expedition sponsored by Sir Joseph Bank.  Of course then they were mainly white and then the popular yellow Europe gardeners..  Not sure of when the purple came about
