This rose grows extremely well here in the Atlanta area. Mine is own root and has not a real problem with disease. It does get wider than taller. It's about 3ft tall and 4 ft wide. No real problems with blackspot either. Pleasant fragrance, good repeat, nice tidy bush. It really should be more widely grown and available.

I wonder if this rosa "lavender Pinnochio" can be grown in New Mexico, USA. We live in a valley between Santa Fe and Taos. Normally, we can go down to -10 in winter. Hmm...
Thank you, SHK

Probably. This line of roses prefer heat over cold or wet. The main origin of the "true mauves" is derived from a desert rose species.

If this rose is ill-advised by the local societies there, you can also inquire about 'Distant Drums', which is easy to grow, just as fragrant, and of a similar color type. Although it ranges from tans to orchid, rather than tans to mauve.
