About 15 years ago I bought a VERY fragrant double white rose at the annual Olbrich Botanical Gardens spring sale. It got shaded out of the original spot where I planted it and has been slowly fading in its second home as the trees grew in that location. So last month I moved it again — back to its original home which has lost its big trees to age and storms in the intervening years.
It was a bad time of year to do such a thing but the time was right for me and the spot had been waiting all summer. It only had two flowers in its current location so I figured if it died I wouldn't have really lost anything. My Rosa rugosa var. albo plena sputtered a bit, lost most of its leaves but is now sending out fresh new leaves.
It's underplanted with foxgloves whose leaves make it difficult to see the rose. It becomes more clear if you click on the photo to enlarge it.
