After 7 days of constant rain, I got my first bloom. It wasn't damaged by rain. With gypsum (calcium sulfate), I get perfect blooms for the past 2 years. The repeat is very good, at least 2 flushes for my zone 5a. The scent smells like Tabu perfume - a complex blend of many scents: spice, myrrh, damask, and lavender. The lavender note comes out in warm temp., and the spice and myrrh come out in cool temp. This rose has divine scent, and worth growing for its being compact, doesn't take up much space, plus safe tiny thistles. I like it so much that I ordered another one.

I've won several fragrance awards for this rose---very strong and wonderfully fragrant

how do you enter in fragrance classes? i've heard judges try to avoid them because they don'[t know how to judge them.

I think it would depend on the show you enter. there aren't always fragrance classes, but in some shows there are. check with your local rose society for the best information here. hopefully you are a member of the American Rose Society too. enjoy!

This rose bush is better with small obelisk or another support.

How good is the rebloom on this rose? Anything like the floribundas or hybrid teas, etc.?
