Pope John II Rose

This is a 9 inches by 12 inches oil painting of the Pope John II rose.  It took a couple of years to get a good looking rose on this bush to bloom.

The bush was plagued with so many problems the first couple of years. I will have to say it was well worth the time and effort puttering after this rose bush. My husband and I planted this in the early summer then a heat wave hit. The poor bush looked like it was going to keel over every day with 100 plus degrees weather.

This past spring the rose bush had spectacular blooms.

Now this painting is in the process of drying.


  1. @Deano - Puttering after the rose bush was very interesting.

    @Dust - Thank you.

  2. Teresa, the Pope II rose brush this summer is so beautiful.
