This one is still in it's 5 gal. nursery pot, no fertilizer yet. I find most Kordes roses are wonderful performers.

I know, one of the English rosarians called Kordes roses "rudely healthy". Where did you get the rose South Africa?

I bought it Palatine, a great vendor! My favorite Kordes is Brothers Grimm Fairy Tale, I just picked up my second one at Regans in Fremont with their fall 1/2 price sale.

I've always wanted to go to Regans, thanks for the head's up about the sale. My favorite Kordes rose is Westerland.

Regans always start their sale on Labor Day weekend, I called ahead to see if they had my selection in stock, paid over the phone and picked it up the next day. They had tons of roses still in stock.

As own-root, Strike it Rich died to the crown in my zone 5a winter (zero canes). But it sprouted back FAST, now with buds on May 31. Any other TALL & vigorous roses like that? Those are most likely to survive zone 5a winter. Thanks for any info.

I'm in Calif. so uneducated as to wintering over roses or making any suggestions. May I suggest asking in a rose forum, like on National Gardening Association? You can interact with other members from similar zones.

This is either coming from another nearby rose or is a shoot from the graft, either way, it's not Gebrüder Grimm and so should not be listed here.
