Kiss Me Rose = Grandiflora – Held Over in October

Kiss Me Rose Grandiflora

October was milder than usual for Minnesota. While the drought continues farmers do not have enough feed for their animals. The cost of hay has gone up as the supplies are smaller. The corn however is doing okay despite the drought. The leaves are dry on the trees. The color is still spectacular. The temperatures have gone down to the 40s and 50s Fahrenheit. In a more normal range.

Last year at this time in October we had 6-9 inches of snow! Surprise. Surprise. As this Kiss Me rose was still blooming last week, I went around the rose garden and added some more beauties to my collection. Here’s hoping that snow stay’s away until November.

“Grandiflora” is a term coined in 1954 to describe a new rose developed from a cross between hybrid tea and floribunda roses. Grandifloras tend to carry their flowers in clusters on top of tall stems. The flower size is a bit larger than floribunda. ~ University of Illinois Extension

Have a good week wherever you may be.

    We were in the same boat last year and this year, it’s a gorgeous sunny 16 degrees Celsius, which is about 63 degrees F. My hibiscus is still blooming outdoors, just like your rose!
