Sunset and a Rose
Crown Princess Margareta is listed as a good choice for hot, dry climates; it is certainly living up to its reputation, continuing to bloom with a good soaking every other day. (ed. I should correct that to "recommended for hot climates", but the dry conditions do not seem to distress it either as long as it is kept reasonably moist.) The worst enemy right now are the rabbits since the bush is still small and tends to blossom low the ground - well within rabbit reach. Speaking of growth habit, this variety appears to be an excellent candidate for pegging though I haven't begun yet.
And the blooms are exquisite...
