This was sold as Nicole by Edmunds, but as you can see the petal count is only 20-25. It is Hannah Gordon. But either way, this is a great rose. Growth is to 12 feet on thick stems (up to 2" diameter) and masses of flowers.

Hello, beautiful picture you have posted for Mme Isaac Pereier. I'm thinking of trying her out in my yard in Southern CT. Is she not bothered too much by blackspot in your warm humid climate of GA? Thanks.

Thank you. Yes I love Mme Isaac Perriere. Here it seems to grow into a huge bush, Runners easily reach 10-12 feet. And YES it get blackspot. In fact it is one of my early sensors as to whether my spray program is effective. Most years, I do pretty well. Until I get lazy. My monthly pattern is to spray Banner Max(Honorguard) week 1, week 2 either Daconil or Triflorine, Week 3 is Compass, Week 4 is Neem oil. I add Pentathlon only when I see a breakout on Scarlet Meilland which is ususally the first to show by several days. But Mme Isaac will show next if I don't jump on it fast

Well, by the looks of your pictures your spray routine works wonders to me. I'm a novice and just got into roses this year after buying my first house. Just about everything gets blackspot at my house, especially Abraham Darby, such gorgeous blooms, too bad it nearly defoliates completely. I don't know anything about these chemical sprays, all I know is what I buy at my Home Depot (usually Bayer products). But I hope some research and reading posts like yours will get me the info I need. Btw, I enjoyed reading your monthly diary entries.

Thanks -Jim
