*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased as a band from Long Ago Roses July 2012.
General Notes: Nice perfume, long, lanky canes, blackspots horribly.
5/24/2014 - Planted in raised bed in new garden. During high summer, this area gets 8+ hours of direct sun (late morning until evening), and then the rest is filtered sun.
2/2016- I had to remove this rose. I did love the scent and bloom, but the disease issues were too extreme (and I'm not picky in that area). Even spraying this rose didn't help. YMMV
3\23\2016- cut down to the ground with intentions to dig it out, but it sprang back so full and vigorous... Sigh. She remains for now.
