Flower Friday - Sunstruck

'Sunstruck' roses

This week's featured flowers are ''Sunstruck" roses!  These pretty hybrid tea roses have apricot-colored  petals with golden yellow and salmon pink highlights.  The yellow markings on the undersides of the petals set this rose apart from many other apricot blends.  'Sunstruck' has large, slightly-fragrant flowers and blooms in flushes  from early summer to early fall.  The foliage is dark green and somewhat glossy.   To learn more about about 'Sunstruck' roses, check out the 'Sunstruck' page at Dave's Garden, the 'Sunstruck' page at Sun Valley Garden Center, or the 'Sunstruck' page at HelpMeFind.

A quick blog note:

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and are having a relaxing holiday weekend.  We had our first snow of the season this week and enjoyed a deliciously fun holiday feast yesterday.   Yay!  Plus, we now have one extra thing to be thankful for: our laptop is finally back from the service center!  *insert happy dance here*

Happy reading!  :-)
