This rose is a very vigorous grower in my climate but unfortunately suffers badly from aphid and other insect damage in spite of frequent sprayings with insecticidal soap. None of the other roses in my garden have showed so much damage. This year it produced five buds and dropped them all. I hope that it does better next year!

This rose is in its second year, and it's rapidly becoming a favorite. Very vigorous, healthy without spray, supplemental water, or any special treatment. And covered with brilliant red blooms.

A lovely, lovely rose.

But it will sucker if grown on its own roots.

Yes, it suckers quite well. Mine after a decade has provided me with a "wall" of roses as it spreads sideways. It is a spectacular rose and an outstanding landscape shrub able to hold its own with other woody landscape shrubs and perennials.

This rose is vigorous, nearly blackspot free in my organic Richmond VA garden (i.e. steamy summers perfect for huge blackspot problems), and as an added bonus, the foliage turns a beautiful red burgundy with some leaves showing lovely orange shadings as well. The fall color was the biggest surprise this lovely rose had to offer. I'd recommend this rose to anyone who has room for a bright red gallica type once bloomer.
