"And the bloom goes on, and the bloom goes on!"

In an earlier post, I said that my 'Snow Rose' serissa appeared to be gearing up for a period of blooming. It now appears to be fully geared up, and is blooming merrily! Here are a few more pictures, taken this morning.

Many branches are covered with blossoms.

You can see why this cultivar is named 'Snow Rose.'    

Imagine yourself an inch tall, climbing in these branches! (For reference, the blossoms are large-pea size.)
I have never gotten seeds from a 'Snow Rose' serissa. Many named cultivars, of different species, are sterile. But the flowers alone make this plant worth growing!

(And yes, I enjoy the music of The Mamas and the Papas. However did you guess? <wink>)

  1. I have been corrected on one point: "The Beat Goes On" was sung by Sonny and Cher, not The Mamas and The Papas. Sorry; after 35 years, memory had gotten a tad fuzzy there.
