Would anyone who has roses with different fragrances, care to describe the blue moon fragrance? (e.g. for many other roses I see fruity, citrusy, lemony, tea, damask, sweet, old rose and so forth), but for blue moon, HMF merely says 'strong, opinions vary' - I'd love to hear more detail on the blue moon fragrance, if anyone can. Thank you

I can't wait to hear your answers! I should have some Blue Moon arriving soon and if the fragrance is anything like Twice in a Blue Moon, then I will be thrilled. I find it hard to describe that one though, because it is different from the others to my nose, simply lovely wafting in the vase. Not tea, not damask, not lemon, not old rose to me.

I have had a Blue Moon growing in my zone 5b garden for over 5 years. Every year it grows over 6 feet tall, and has dieback down to the snow line or below. The flowers are huge and fragrant. I once had a bloom in December a few years ago. The trick might be that I planted it only about 12" from my basement at the foot of my house, on a south-southeast facing wall. It is protected from the worst winds and may benefit from heat seeping from my 1800's fieldstone basement... I also grow a Pink Peace similarly, again 5 + years old.

'Blue Moon' and 'Cl. Blue Moon' are both being offered for sale again this year by Burgess Seed & Plant Co. Would anyone happen to know if the Burgess 'Blue moon' is correctly named?
