Cherokee rose abloom

Years ago, I got this plant from the Bot Garden, when they used to have an annual sale (which they haven’t had for years). I have been snugly pleased (without any research) that I have a Cherokee Rose. And, for many years, I not captured photos of the blooms.

This year, a photo! And a blog post, to boot! And a quick WikiPee check…and I discover…that Cherokee roses are…
