Prince Jardinier/Schloss Ippenburg:
is very healthy, a vigorous plant (up to 1,8 m),has a beautifull form, a very nice fragrance (see the awards), and shows no balling. If that mightn't reason enough to plant it... it lasts long on a vase.
Needs some winterprotection and planting the bud union deep enough(appr.8cm)
Lichtkönigin Lucia and my Moonlight LCL from Kordes are also very rain resistant.
Erinnerung an Brod too.
And a real stunner, continuously flowering continuously, despite the rain, is Ingrid Bergman. Also a very good form, fragrant, no balling, excellent vaselife and a vigorous very healthy plant up to 1,8 m in one season.
Sharifa Asma behaves well too, relatively small plant, but very winterhardy and exquisite perfume... no balling.
As for (not) balling,or good rain resistance: Hot Chocolate is good too! Just like Kronenbourg(Cl.), Scharlachglut and Bolchoï." Jay- Jay

*** White Licorice, Caprice de Meilland, Veteran's Honor, Moonstone, Firefighter, Quietness, Valencia and Tiffany also good for vase. Shazam and Polonaise (Buck rose) last 2 weeks in the vase. America lasts 1 week in the vase & takes partial shade. Sunset celebration lasts long in the vase & hardy in MN. Wedding Bells last 8 to 9 days in the vase for Badger Rose. Alec's red is hardy to zone 5 & good cut flower. Peter Mayle takes partial shade & good cut flower.

This is a very good rose - bloomed in the winter time in Houston area, the blooms lasted 2 weeks in a vase!!!!! Medium sized blooms in HT form. Very happy I got this rose.
The still potted 2017 OP seedling looks very healthy and makes lots of shoots.
