I bought this beautiful rose from Edmund's Roses in 2020 as a graft. I usually prefer to buy own root, but I had an opportunity to get this rose that I have wanted for quite a while, so I jumped on it. I put it in a pot and it's so beautiful! It is one of my favorites! We just got our first snow in Richland, WA, so we will see if it will survive the 7b zone snow.
Bought this rose twice as own-root from Roses Unlimited. One bloom can perfume the entire room. Except Japanese Beetles love to eat this. First one survived 2 zone 5a winters, then died in dry spring. Second one died in its 1st-dry-spring. Roots are solid & woody but shallow. If I have to do it all over again, I would get my cut-off plastic-containers to form a circular ring around to winter-protect & to hold in moisture & pile up leaves.
