Rose Lemon Sonata

I bought this wonderful yellow rose plant in May 2012. Ever since then it has bloomed quite profusely.

I am not sure what kind of rose the plant is, even the real ID is unknown.

The other rose lovers I know call it Lemon Sonata. So for the sake of identification, we’ll call this Lemon Sonata until the exhibition name could be found.

I think it’s a hybrid because there’s only one flower on each stalk whenever it blooms. The plant is upright and not bushy. Will update more once I manage to get more information about this lovely yellow rose.

Clair Martin Rose

I bought this in May but only able to write about it in September. It’s called Clair Martin rose. I think it belongs to modern shrub rose family.

The color of the blooms is pink. It has a very sweetly scented blooms which are semi double. Continous flowering, healthy and vigorous. Can grow up to 6ft. (Info taken from Pounsley Plants – Modern Shrub Roses)

After I brought it home I made a mistake by pruning the end of the branches. I am still waiting for it to bloom again..huhu! I think I need to repot it into a bigger pot and find a space where it can climb.

Yellow Cosmos

I found this picture of yellow flowers taken in May 2012. I think it is cosmos but after reading description on cosmos, I realized that my cosmos have smaller petals and very different structure of leaves.

I planted it from seed given by a friend. However due to my lack of knowledge in growing annual flowers it died after a month or two.

Some of the info about cosmos taken from Aggie Horticulture – Cosmos Produces Cosmic Beauty

Yellow cosmos is a sun – loving annual; it will not produce as many blooms if grown in the shade. Choose a location that receives at least 8 – 10 hours of direct, sunbathing sunlight. Cosmos will perform best if grown in well-drained soil. Yellow cosmos is not a heavy feeder. Excess fertilization will cause plants to produce excessive leaf growth at the expense of flower production.

These were the biggest mistakes I made with my plant. I over water, put them in shade and fertilized them too much..haha!

Next time, I know what I should do with annuals like cosmos :)
