I find this rose to be quite hardy/vigorous. (in zone 6). It doesn't need a super amount of attention for a hybrid tea. The cutting stems on this rose can get to be "florist" length if you treat the plant right.....nice!

We had a cold, rainy spring in the PNW, and this rose was by far my worst when it came to balling. Bud after bud would fatten and then not open, getting ruined with a disgusting mush of outer petals. I'm astonished that this rose was rated "Good" for rain tolerance.

Now that it has dried up and gotten warmer, this rose is lovely.

I have two double delights in my garden, i noticed this strange looking lump on the side of the bud but i left it there because the rose is healthy, it has opened and i have twin blooms from one bud, is this possible or is it considered an abnormality? Both blooms are fine, i have a couple of pics i will post here, but is this something i should be concerned about?

thank you

Monica, it is not normal, but it can happen. Enjoy it as something special, it is nothing to be worried about. The development of the blooms sometimes go awry. A nuisance is when you get proliferation, i.e. you have a bloom coming out of another. I had one rose which only proliferated, that was not a nice sight!
