I love this rose for its color. It may be a small in size plant but I always see it when it blooms. I might try grafting it onto Fortuniana root stock. I have a no spray garden and it doesn't seem to mildew. We are zone 9B. It is hot and has low humidity for most of the year.

Exquisitely lovely yellow blend HT. Unmatched brilliance of color. This rose has a small but passionately dedicated following. The rose is surprisingly fragrant. There are problems. The plant is small, lacks vigor, and is a magnet for mildew. Budding onto a vigorous rootstock is a necessity. On the other hand the rose can be surprisingly productive. Form can be exhibition but a bit loose by today's standards. Recommended only for the dedicated rosarian who will put up her shortcomings. This rose has a way of worming its way into the hearts of discriminating rosarians.

Takao mildews like crazy in coastal Southern California, but it is well worth spraying. One of my absolute favorite roses.
