Can anyone tell me about the disease resistance of this rose? It will have to endure partial shade and I've been told by some nurserys that it would be fine. The second question is would this work for a pillar? Thanks for your help.

You can look up "hybrid musks" in our GLOSSARY and find out more about this class of roses.

I have mine growing in mostly shade in a pot - absolutely no disease. Drought tolerant in a pot. Blooms more of course when it gets sufficient water. Tough little rose.

Ours has lost almost all foliage to blackspot!

It will mildew a bit when conditions are at their worst.

This is the best yellow rose I have. In the hot, humid Houston area, Gold Medal suffered dieback and eventually got shovel-pruned. New Day - died. Climbing Gold Badge - only blooms well in the spring, as well as Graham Thomas. Winter Sunset only bloomed in the spring. Yellow Maman Cochet and Rosette Delizy is blooming pretty good. The only other dependable yellow rose in the heat of the summer is Buff Beauty. It just keeps blooming when most of the other roses have taken a time-out due to the heat. I plan on buying more of her. Buff Beauty makes a good cut flower and the scent is wonderful. Her foliage is beautiful and the way her canes gracefully arch under the weight of the blooms is lovely.

May 2011, if you are looking for a tough Yeller Climber, try ~ ROYAL GOLD ~. It can take the heat and the roses are heavily scented here in Silicon Valley. It throws out monster canes that in this area need to be cut back; this climber reached 17 ft in its 3rd year! I rate it almost as prolific in cane output, as the red climber, SYMPATHIE.

I was wondering if this rose is very disease resistant - especially to blackspot? Also - does this rose bloom a lot like Carefree Beauty its parent or more like a Hybrid Tea? Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

I can't answer your question. My garden doesn't offer conditions favorable to Black Spot. I would guess Naga Belle to be much better than average in terms of disease resistance based on it's lineage. It blooms more like a HT.

Naga Belle shows excellent resistance to Black Spot. I live in a very hot and humid section of North Carolina. I do not spray and Naga Belle thrives and has frequent flushes of beautiful, deep pink hybrid tea shaped blooms that last well on plant and in the vase. She blooms more than any other rose in my garden which consists mostly of G. Buck roses and a few tea roses.

Great information. Thanks for this.

It's true. I have several roses with blackspot, some have it badly, but Naga Belle has *zero* blackspot!!!! I think this rose is very disease resistant.
