I bought Rosie a bit late in the season for Houston, so once she was plopped in the ground she never really got going because it was too hot. There was only one good flush of flowers before it shutdown in the extreme heat. However, the plant itself has stayed very healthy and put up with the wonky Houston weather very well...much better than some other roses I have. I'm anxious to see how it does this fall and next spring in cooler weather.

After looking at this one a few months, I am perplexed. It is a great garden rose, looks absolutely stunning in the garden. Then, when you try to cut a spray and take it indoors in a bouquet, the blooms close up in a strangely triangular fashion and completely refuse to reopen. So, good for the garden, bad for bouquets and for cutting.

It does get "shy." I see that on cool mornings, too. But as the "greeting rose" nearest our fence gate, Rosie is outstanding! Love how long the blooms last. They are paler in the summer but still lovely. And so robust and healthy!

Really liking the first bloom cycle on this one!

My roses are in the front yard and Rosie has had a lot of compliments. Beautiful blooms and foliage on a nicely-shaped plant. The flowers haven't been fragrant, but I know from experience that sometimes new plantings take a cycle or two to do that. (If she isn't going to be fragrant at all, I'll put her on NextDoor next January. Life is too short for roses that aren't fragrant.)

RtR is starting to develop a spicy fragrance. Agree on the bloom cycle -- elegant, clean, every stage is interesting. This plant had a slow start but is starting to take off, and I am now glad it has a prominent location near our fence gate.
