Purchased from Houston Garden Centers Spring 2011.
July 2012- My plant has now reached five feet tall and a solid three feet wide. It is very full and bushy with foliage all the way down to the ground. No disease problems so far. Always flowering, moderate fruity scent. Takes pruning very well. I really love this rose!
June 2013- Someone asked me not too long ago if this plant ever defoliated, and I told her no. Well, lol, it has now. I can't really fault it though, as disease has been everywhere this spring in my garden. Oh well, it made the task of removing dead wood from inside the bush easier. Silver linings and all that. :)
7/13- dug up and potted due to impending move. This one was pretty tough to get out. Very strong roots.
5/24/2014 - Planted in new garden.
10/8/2018- My plant never really recovered from the move, and just sort of barely existed for a few years before finally dying this past Summer.
