I have been reading reviews regarding the fragrance of miranda lambert rose.
My experience so far, including early spring blooms as well as early summer blooms is that the fragrance is barely detectable. Is anyone aware of certain conditions that bring out the fragrance? Among my other HT, I find that each different variety seems to have certain 'special' conditions where fragrance is maximized. For example, some peak fragrance in the early morning, seemingly just due to time of day. Others peak fragrance in the morning but not until sun directly penetrates the petals. Others seems to peak fragrance in late afternoon sun. Miranda lambert I cant seem to find any such peak and I am really wondering why people describe as fragrant. As far as looks go, her color is absolutely gorgeous, surprisingly even in houston heat (93degrees)

I find her fragrance to be very elusive. There have been a few times where it had the most incredible sweet rosy anise scent, and 90% of the time I smell absolutely nothing even when it seems conditions would be right. I've only grown her for a season though and haven't gotten many blooms yet so I still have a lot more observing to do.

I agree with everyone when I saw this for the first time, it struck as some OGR, flat-topped, super full bloom that had that "bluish" tint, meaning mauve.

Huge bush bought at Walmart for a really good price, we bought two. Lost ALL leaves to Blackspot within the month, I am treating this time hoping resistance is better when established. I don't spray for BS normally because i will tolerate it on the lower 12" of a plant that for the most part is well-established and has most of its leaves without BS. There are a handful of roses that never seem to develop resistance, Henri Martin is one for me that seems particularly bad. We will see what ends up happening with Miranda Lambert!

A large flat of this rose arrived at Home Depot today.

It is not deep pink! It is MAUVE! They looked gorgeous. Huge, very full, very fragrant blooms on fat plants. The color was somewhere between Melody Parfumee and Gypsy Blood, or other some such OGR that is purple-pink.

So, yeah, it is not generic deep pink. These arrived from California, I think. So I dont know their health, or how climate affects scent. But they looked super nice there.

Is it me or does it have a purple tinge in the photos? I have not seen it in person yet, so maybe someone could comment about its color.
