I know a lot of you know that Julia Child was a premier chef who wrote cook books and had a television show. Did you know that she had a rose named after her?
The Julia Child rose is a beautiful, strong yellow rose that is very hardy and disease resistant. I have mine in a pot (gophers!) right next to another rose. Julia is always shiny green, glossy and free of disease and insects. My other rose (whose name escapes me) is a mess of shriveled powdery mildew leaves and branches. Same area, same care. Obviously all roses are not created equal. So what am I going to do? Rip out the sickly rose and get another Julia!
After all, we can never have too much Julia Child in our lives.
