My experience with this rose is that while it had gorgeous globular blooms, fine form, lovely color.... the plant was stingy. Granted, it was kept in a container, so perhaps it does better when planted?

Growth was ungainly long branches that would have been fine if tied off to a trellis or something. (Only 2-3 long canes, not much branging out).

My nose couldn't detect a fragrance.

*In my opinion, Princess de Monaco would be a fair substitute, grows well in a container, and blooms also have that lovely round shape, cream or white color with pink edging. Less stingy also. I really liked Eden's flowers though... when it decided to bother with blooming. ;)

I've purchased an Eden rose last year and it stands against a southern facing wall. It grew a bit and produced 1 flower wich lasted for 2 weeks, there was no visual sign of sickness and it kept it's leaves in Winter. Now, may 2017 it still has it's glossy folliage and it produced 15 very big rosebuds so i think the flowers are gonna be very big. No strong growth until now but maybe it will start after this first flush. I agree with some earlier comments that this rose needs some time to really start off but as i mentioned, it is very disease resistant in Flanders Belgium, wich has rather rainy summers and medium cold winters. When the flowers open (i think within 2 weeks) i'll post a picture.

Very healthy leaves, I have not seen any black spots since the start of the Spring here in Australia. Even though there is no strong heavenly scent the blooms show equals it all.

It's also very hardy, last year (I mean the whole last year) was a disaster. Possums ate all of it's top leaves and all it's flower buds and only left me it's canes and lower leaves. This year it came back after I installed a Possums barrier during the winter 2016 which are located on top of the fence

Hello! I have three Edens here in zone 9 and they are all quite healthy no matter where I put them in full sun or part shade. They resist every disease but only one bloom in this first year. It was so pretty but all white and lasted almost 2 weeks.

Do the Edens take so long to bloom? I do water and fertilize. I want to keep all of them because even just the leaves are so pretty but...I wish they would bloom.

Any response would be much appreciated.

Eden needs some time to establish. Over here, it needed almost three years, to grow from a bush-like form into a climber. And yes, it takes some time to start blooming and in our garden it has 2 or 3 flushes, with just very few scattered flowers.
It can get a very little bit of Blackspot. I fertilize twice a year in March and June. Only watered it a few times in the first two years after planting.
Right now it's having it's this years' second flush.
Just exercise some patience....
Good luck!
