The Vintage Rosery
Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken of the roses in our gardens located in Needville, Texas (zone 8b.)
This rose blooms throughout the year with flowers of bright pink. Dr. Robert Basye bred it, in an attempt to produce a thornless, care free rose. `Basye's Blueberry' is nearly thornless and can reach to 8 feet.
Bred in Texas by Dr. Robert E. Basye in 1982. A retired Texas A&M Mathematics professor, he had bred roses for over 50 years. Professor Basye died February 9, 2000.
