orange roses and pink dahlias in vase

The end of July and early August are tricky moments in my garden.  Many of the roses have done their best stuff and a lot of my perennials need cutting back  The garden is a little dry and over the years I’ve actively looked for solutions to remedy the lack of colour.

Enter the Polka rose!    This is now a firm favourite in my garden.  It buds yellow, opens to apricot orange and gently fades to a soft pale pink!   Added to that it is a spectacular repeat flower-er and I have now planted three of them at different points in the garden.

And when they flower at the same time as the Café au Lait dahlias that sometimes come up pink instead of beige, then I am doubly happy!
