*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased from Rio Bay Roses Mar 2013. One of the strongest scented roses in my garden!
5/24/2014 - Planted in new garden.
8/2014- this one is growing low and wide so far. About 2 ft tall by 3.5 ft wide. Flowers are pale and flat in heat (our temps are mid 90s to 100 or so daytime and 80s nighttime). Fragrance is still there though.
5/25/2015- plant is just about five feet tall and three feet wide. Dense foliage all the way down to the ground. Handsome. I can't call this disease free, but it is certainly less affected by blackspot than most others.
9/4/2015- I need to stake Beverly, because it has decided to grow mostly on one side this summer. Going to be massive.
