Very healthy leaves, I have not seen any black spots since the start of the Spring here in Australia. Even though there is no strong heavenly scent the blooms show equals it all.

It's also very hardy, last year (I mean the whole last year) was a disaster. Possums ate all of it's top leaves and all it's flower buds and only left me it's canes and lower leaves. This year it came back after I installed a Possums barrier during the winter 2016 which are located on top of the fence

Hello! I have three Edens here in zone 9 and they are all quite healthy no matter where I put them in full sun or part shade. They resist every disease but only one bloom in this first year. It was so pretty but all white and lasted almost 2 weeks.

Do the Edens take so long to bloom? I do water and fertilize. I want to keep all of them because even just the leaves are so pretty but...I wish they would bloom.

Any response would be much appreciated.

Eden needs some time to establish. Over here, it needed almost three years, to grow from a bush-like form into a climber. And yes, it takes some time to start blooming and in our garden it has 2 or 3 flushes, with just very few scattered flowers.
It can get a very little bit of Blackspot. I fertilize twice a year in March and June. Only watered it a few times in the first two years after planting.
Right now it's having it's this years' second flush.
Just exercise some patience....
Good luck!

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.
