After 5 seasons in my own "Home Test Garden" I am convinced that it will be a very good Miniflora/Patio rose.
THE BLOOMS ARE LASTING FOR DAYS ON THE PLANT AND AS A CUT FLOWER.
Check out the nine (9) photos of a spray which lasted for about 2 weeks. The blooms are also very rain tolerant.--- SEE PHOTO No. 5 "DAY 4"
It has an eye catching bicolour/blend with excellent shiny foliage.
