Flower Friday - Kateryna

'Kateryna' roses

This week's featured flowers are ''Kateryna" roses!  These lovely shrub roses have light pink petals and bloom in clusters.  This shrub has dark green foliage and is about three feet tall and two feet wide.  The flowers have a mild scent and are still blooming in October at our favorite local park.   To learn more about about 'Kateryna' roses, check out the 'Kateryna' page at Dave's Garden, the 'Kateryna' page at RogersRoses, or the 'Kateryna' page at HelpMeFind.
