On August 31, 1931, the U. S. Patent Office granted plant patent number 1 to Henry Bosenberg for the rose ‘New Dawn’. There's a lot to like about this rose but not least is that it so reliably reblooms and it has such beautiful, shiny green foliage that doesn't have problems with black spot, even here in Maryland. I got my plant from my coworker, Kamala and it's growing up and over the back fence. This brings “rose week” to a close as this is the last of the nine roses in our garden.
