Most cultivars demonstrated the same resistance or susceptibility in both leaf and flower buds to the three strains of mildew. However, in one cultivar, ‘Fellowship’ also known as ‘Livin’ Easy’ it was observed that leaf buds were highly susceptible while flower buds were very rarely infested.

Is this a quote from some reference?
Susceptible to what?

It's not an uncommon trait.

Scarlet Moss and Canyon Road both do this, when heat stressed. Mildew will appear on the buds, and will disappear in the next flush if the weather changes enough.

Hi all,

I really liked Livin Easy BUT had to shovel prune because of bad blackspot in our no
spray garden!
LE got through our winters fine, grew fast, and LE bloomed well with 3+" bloom size...

The same over here and it got weaker every year and died.

It had blackspot in my garden as well. It died last year after a very, very cold winter in zone 6/5.

The final blow indeed came from a very cold winter too over here.

This is the third season in my garden, Zone 6b Switzerland and already showing signs of black spot - again!! I am going to make a habit of reading the member comments and not just the main page in future.

A very good intention! Sometimes ratings are a hint too.

So the statement in the description, that this rose is "very blackspot-resistent", can be referred to the garbage bin... or to the land of the fairy-tales.

Ought to withstand zone 5b winters, but it didn't survive last winter. Temps to minus 20 and almost no snow and a lotta sun.
Other roses, that ought to die under such circumstances, froze back, but came back fresh and healthy.
