These photos were taken today. Louis Philippe is also known as the Florida Cracker rose. It is a wonderful rose. I’ve probably grown this for 30 years. This is not my original plant, it died a few years back. I need to root more cuttings of this. It is an easy rose to grow and has a nice scent and wonderful blooms. You can read about it here.
"The Rose is gowned in petaled grace and lovely beyond telling;
She always lifts a friendly face, regardless of her dwelling.
Her golden silence can express to us, no matter where, joy shared;
Give solace in distress from those who fondly care.
The Rose has ways of saying things we much delight to hear;
without a spoken word, she brings and keeps our loved ones near."
