  Rosa 'Anemone'
 
Roses
Rosa 'Anemone' was planted at San Marcos Growers garden.
 
This pink evergreen hybrid climber has been previously known as Rosa anemonoides or R. sinica 'Anemone' but now it is considered a Rosa laevigata hybrid. Bred by J. Schmidt of Erfurt, Germany in 1895, it is presumed to be a cross between the white, single flowered Cherokee Rose, R. laevigata and a Tea Rose. For this reason it is often called 'Pink Cherokee', and although it has the vigor of R. laevigata, it is much more open and its foliage more dainty. Growing to 12 feet tall and wide in the early spring this plant has a profusion of lightly fragrant large clear pink single flowers erupting from the glossy foliage and is often followed by a rebloom in the early summer. The flower petals are lightly veined with a deeper pink, are paler on the reverse side and surround a crown of golden stamens. The bloom period extends through mid-spring and is often followed by a rebloom in the early summer. A large specimen of Rosa 'Anenome' can be seen at our nursery on our back fence behind the main greenhouse. Zones 5-9.
