This tree-rose is the largest I have ever had. As this variety is very winter-hardy it's getting bigger & taller by the year. Here the size of this tree rose : 1.30 Meters (51 inches) across the top. Total height from bud-union to top is 2.30 Meters, which is about 90 inches !! I was never able to take a photo of the whole tree rose in full bloom because of all the rain we had in June. I estimated "About 50 blooms for the top spray", but counted 69 blooms in ALL after cutting it off. Estimated total blooms : maybe 300 plus. It never ever had mildew or blackspot with very limited spraying about 4 to 5 times a year, since I had it in 1991. It is a sister seedling of 'Rubies 'n' Pearls.

These blooms still opened during more than a week of rain on & off and never had a chance to really dry up. The petals show some rain damage compared to some other varieties which just ball & rot and never open at all.

The same spray with BLUE background now. Recently I sent out a survey to over 80 rosarians, asking them if they prefer "BLACK" or "BLUE" background. About 60 % prefer black !!!
