Rosa Glauca/Top Shot

A shrub rose with lovely grey-green leaves and red veins

This rose doesn't bloom for very long but that's okay since I grow it for its leaves. Having said that, every year when it blooms I take my camera out to take photos of this shrub's tiny (an inch to 1 1/2 inches in diameter) flowers.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

Oh my! The leaves are beautiful and so is that sweet little flower.

It doesn't look like what I think of as a rose, but it certainly is pretty. Why do you grow it for the leaves? Is it the color?

This is a pretty rose and I can see why you like the greenery too. Enjoy the weekend.

It's a pretty rose- but I think I like the leaves best- the dark red...that's neat.

Those leaves must make a nice background for other things in the garden!
