The planting instructions say that this Peace rose needs at least six hours of direct sunlight. I don’t think they had a Southern California heatwave in mind, though.
It’s 105 in the shade in the back yard, so goodness knows how hot it is on the west side of the house this afternoon. My smart mother suggested this easy fix! I cut slits in an old busted up umbrella so the wind won’t catch it so easily and put it over the rose.
Temperatures are supposed to rise over 100 degrees every day for the next week. Laying low on the edge of the desert.
