First season in my garden bare root, growing in a container. Canes have grown to 2ft+ and have bloomed twice so far (currently late July). I learned the hard way that its canes do not like to be bent too much, so it doesn't seem suitable for a narrow pillar or obelisk (what it's growing on currently). Would need to get a wider obelisk, or train it so it can arch or stretch along a fence

Fragrance is very nice. So far it's moderate in strength. The blooms are beautiful as well. They are a lovely shade of dark wine red that looks purple - almost exactly like Munstead Wood (also growing in a container). Flower size is accurate as described at about 2.5 - 3in, Also seems to be clean - no blackspot so far. I should note that I have sprayed for BS a couple of times this season, but it seems it wasn't good enough for a few of my roses - though all of the ones that are showing BS have been stressed anyway.

So far I love this rose

I'm sure that y'all have already noticed what a novice like myself (2 year roser) has noticed. That roses, not only grow differently, but are different colors in different climates. I am a person that really likes to know what the color of the rose will be in MY climate.

Is there a way that you could post the city or area of the country or countries (e.g. Northern Cal.) alongside the photo? This would really be a great addition.

Thanks for being a great site. And if you can't , you can't. Thanks, anyway.
