Shrub Rose ‘Cassie’ is a Flower Powerhouse
It’s October 20th, and everybody in the garden is winding down. Everybody but ‘Cassie’, that is.
‘Cassie’ is a medium-sized shrub rose that refuses to acknowledge the change of seasons. She just keeps pumping out small, semi-double white flowers.
She even keeps the flower buds coming.
All this while her canes fill with small orange hips that gradually disappear down the gullets of birds.
Of course, ‘Cassie’ is at her peak in June and July, when she is covered with mildly fragrant blooms.
‘Cassie’ is about as close to trouble-free as a rose can get. I give her absolutely no coddling, and every year she comes back with vigor and clean foliage. Cut back in early spring, she grows to about four feet high.
Do you have any roses or other plants that don’t know when to quit?
