Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

@charlotte ...These are Japanese beetles. Very handsome, but they can eat 400 different desirable garden plants and they especially adore consuming hapless rose petals. They have no natural predators in the Midwest where I live so I say #killitwithfire

Like all rugosas, this #blowsy mess is very #fragrant -- I only wish it would bloom better for me.
