|Graham Thomas growth spurt|
|Graham Thomas blooms|
This particular rose is supposed to grow up to 8 feet high. It loves the sun and is hardy to zone 5. I do absolutely nothing to it all year long other than add some time release fertilizer at the beginning of the season. Maybe if I fussed a bit more, I'd have more uniform growth but that's not the kind of gardener I am.
When I ordered Graham Thomas, I was told I could train it as a climber. I'm having some difficulty doing that since it has such an upright growth habit, but I'm not giving up yet. Meanwhile, I'll just enjoy these little surprises when they happen.
