Not a very good rose. The older Marina is by far superior in the "eyebleed orange category". It has its issues, like any rose from that era, but nothing compared to Vavoom. Very unfortunate.

Try Betty Harkness. It is a few shades more coral pink, but it is also very tangerine colored, and it is very easy to grow. It is quite similar to Livin' Easy, but it lacks the apricot and blended tones, which make it POP more in the landscape.

The only thing this rose has going for it is its color ... but oh what a beautiful color.

In my zone 7 garden it gets about 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Its leave a sucesptible to every disease in the book and even with regular spraying it will be a leafless thorny stick-bush by the end of the summer. The spring bloom is good but after that the flowers are scarce.

It has a bit of fragrance and is fertile in both seed and pollen.

This is the most blackspot prone rose in my garden of 75+ bushes, despite TLC and frequent spraying. This will be seeing my shovel as soon as the rain moves out...

Just got the Edminds catalog and just noticed this one at long last although I think it has been discussed to me as I do love ORANGE and Gingersnap, sick and sad, remains an interest of mine. John M, Missouri is close enough to Ohio that your review will probably result in me buying this one....commenting here because the Edmunds catalog has the near-disclaimer "Excels once established" or something to that effect which generally = "good luck getting it to grow"............the ol' "rewards good cultivation" deal............
