Caldwell County Pink "Found" rose

This is called a "found" rose as it was probably discovered on an abandonded farm, in a cementery, or old home place. This
variety was found in Caldwell County Texas, hence its name. It is labeled an antique rose and is really very pretty in early spring and most of the summer. I am rooting two cuttings for Granddaughter, Lianna.
Where this was found is from the same area that her Grandfather was born.
There are many more "found roses" and most are shrub like with multiple blosoms. History lesson over for the day

YEAH!!! I am so excited!!! I'll have to make sure mom knows to get them from you before we meet up in Mississippi in a few weeks.

I have purchased several knock outs lately, two miniature rose bushes, and my seven sisters rose is starting to climb the fence!!!

Mother,

Your great granddaughter, Princess Jordyn, needs one of those, Paw Paw can keep it alive for her. Well, you may as well send two, one for the Princess and one for either Isabella Rose, or James Michael part two.

I would love to start cuttings for the little ones. Although, there is already a Caldwell County bush in your front flower bed by the gate.
