Or 'Cuisse de Nymphe Emue'. Ask Delphine for a translation, and you'll understand why the rather staid Brits changed this rose's name to 'Maiden's Blush'. Unfortunately, these bloomed too late to enter in the Gardening Gone Wild rose photo contest. Oh well. Last year's blooms were larger, not so rain-soaked.
In my day job, I work as a communications specialist in the Department of Horticulture at Cornell University. I take on freelance jobs from time to time. More gardeners than I can remember have given me plants and freely shared their wisdom. I try to do the same.
