I just planted a own-root Miracle on the Hudson rose bush here earlier in June 2016... No spray garden zone 6a Central Pa.
It just bloomed twice and it has a very nice red color...:)

I shovel pruned our Livin Easy as it got to much blackspot here in our Central Pa no spray garden...
Otherwise I liked it...

Our own root ML died 2015. We had it 4 years. No blackspot issues at all in our no spray garden here in Central Pa. ML did get a little PM in its 4th year but no biggie. Not a very good bloomer! Our ML only had about 16-24 blooms total each entire growing season...Blooms blew quickly 24-48 hours...
ML smelled great though!

Thomas Affleck had a terrible first season here no spray. TA arrived from vendor with BS & PM so it had those two conditions almost the entire first season of 2014...

2015 Thomas Affleck has NOT had one speck of BS or PM this year! Leaves stayed clean from Spring until frost... I'll report back at the end of next year...
