Seven Sisters Roses






Took cutting of my moms Old Fashioned Running Roses " Seven Sisters" last year and I have a field full of Roses in bloom this year, all sizes. They are just beautiful, they are vining roses in various shades of pink to purple pink.



Looked up Seven Sister and it says they are commonly found on old homesteads, that would be the case here


Seven Sisters' is a legendary and famous rose in the Old South, whose flowers of include a range of colors from carmine pink through mauve in a single cluster.

Hi Gayle, thanks for your comment on my blog! Yes, I'm still getting used to FL weather- I've only been here for 18 months... I'm in Jax, so probably pretty similar to Lake City. I'm trying to take advantage of these last few "bearable" days!!
