Initial post 2 MAY 15 by Michael Garhart
When grown right, it is probably one of the most gorgeous roses to ever exist.

However, it has horrible vigor, I'm told it is extremely hard to propagate, and it can get minor black spot, like most hand-painted roses.

I am giving it a chance this year, by crossing it onto a blackspot and fade resistant hybrid, with good vigor.

Almost all other hand-painted roses cannot compare to this rose, when it is grown right. Most of them look like bi-colors. When grown right, you have to touch the petals to assure yourself that the rose is real. I have an old photo of it here, so you can see what I mean.
