A rose is…

Heritage rose abloom 2011

How do you measure the age of a plant, when what you see began as a cutting, so is genetically identical to the plant the cutting came from? Do you start the clock with the severing from the original plant? Do you start from whenever the original plant started? What if there were a series of cuttings, and the stock from the seed is lost in the mists of time?

Waagh! It’s too late for this!
