USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for beds and borders, garden or landscape.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.

More tolerant to disease than most other lavender roses on the market today.
