A few years in and so far, this rose has not been so good, but that might be because I bought it own-root. Clearly, people here have beautiful bushes but mine has short stems, and buds with few petals. The scent is very herbal/citrusy, it reminds me of Heirloom. Overall I prefer, it's parent the McCartney rose for a sweeter scent and richer color. I need to try this rose grafted, to be able to judge it better as most of my roses are grafted on Dr. Huey.

Size estimate may be correct for the temperate climate but is grossly underestimated for the warmer climate, as is often the case with roses. My Beverly bushes in Athens, Greece have grown to approx. 2m high by 1.2m wide in just a few years. One can keep them somewhat smaller by pruning but by the end of the growing season they will have grown back large. This is a very vigorous HT given good cultivation.

I can also attest to the fact that this rose does not like humid / wet weather due to its petals thin substance.

Also, why zone 8b? This is a rose that can perform well to at least zone 9b/10a

Gained height this year (1.80 m), but alas the blooms ball badly in cool rainy weather.
