Route 66 in Albuquerque

Route 66 in Albuquerque may make you think of many things. In addition to “those”things, “Route 66″is a shrub rose that can be spectacular in early spring. The color, when fresh, is dark mauve, and the bloom has bright golden stamens. Another plus for this rose is a fabulous scent. It blooms intermittently throughout the summer. It is at its most glorious at its first bloom. An added bonus here is a little Lady Bug.

    • Hi, Tim. It was one of the earlier roses of the purplish roses put out by Weeks. Some of the later ones do better in the heat, but I have always liked this one. It wasn’t close to blooming when you were here, but everything has just popped this week.
