I planted 3 of these roses along a southeast facing wall March of 2015. All three have grown very fast and are blooming well, BUT, this rose is quite suseptible to blackspot. We did have a very wet El Nino winter here in Northern California, and it does not completely go dormant here in zone 9b. As a result, it holds onto some leaves for a long time. In Early Spring, some of it's lower branches began defoliating because of blackspot. I have begun spraying with an essential oil spray from Dr. Earth, and cleared out all it's mulch, so I can easily pick up any blackspot infected leaves that hit the ground. It is just hitting it's first spring flush and the flowers are beautiful, they are full and heavy and often end up facing downward. One thing I did not foresee, is that I am having to train the new vigorous red canes, so they do not obscure the older blooming canes that are secured to the wall. For now, between spraying, picking up fallen leaves and training canes, I am considering these roses to be rather high maintenance.

Thanks Michael. I have presumed the breeder of 'Music Dancer' was Meilland. And as no date was mentioned in the Australian patent for the 1985 'Pierre de Ronsard', I have chosen <1984 as a temporary date for 'Music Dancer'.

I found it amusing, lol. I rarely ever see a patent where they give the name out of their breeder seedlings.

Hi everyone ! I live in Los Angeles , California ( very close to Los Angeles International Airport) I have been trying to find a Eden (or Pierre de Ronsard) for several years now. I brought several from different nurseries in the area over the years however they are not Eden. Any advice ? Anyone lives in the area that might want to sale me a cutting of their Eden ?

Thank you !

You can check the "Buy From" tab. I just ordered Eden online from Heirloom Roses.
