I experienced this rose as a very weak plant, very susceptible to black-spot (completely defoliated).
Instead of growing after the first "spurt", the plants diminished and died before the end of two seasons.

I have had it for about 9 years. It is more a MF than a Floribunda. It has colorful but small flowers. My plant is about 3-4 feet tall and just as wide. It has a little black spot but I am a no spray garden so I just let the leaves fall off and then the plant puts out another growth of leaves when it gets hot.

I can't believe there are no comments yet on this fabulous rose. Vigorous, generous, black spot resistant this has been a spectacular rose in my Middle Tn garden under heavy disease pressure. In 4-5 years it has grown to be 6' tall and almost 10' wide. It takes a lot of space, but deserves every square inch of garden it takes. It has an excellent spring flush, produces flowers through the entire summer and has a strong fall flush when the summers aren't too dry. I can always count on it to have blooms that can be cut for the house. In my zone 6b-ish garden where it was between 0 and 5 degrees this winter it only had freeze damage on some of its branch tips. I don't spray, rarely water, and other than a few shovels full of horse manure twice a year (if I get around to it) don't give it any special care. This rose really deserves a wider distribution than it has!

Beth,
I managed to root ONE stem out of a dozen from the grocery store. Did you have any luck with yours, and if so, how are they doing for you? I'm in San Francisco, so I tend to have cooler growing conditions. Does that affect green color?

Hi, Deborah!
I've rooted some cuttings of this roe. I want to gerow them in my garden, and I was wondering if you still have yours, what the culture was, disease, etc. It's a lovely rose!
Jeff
