Albuquerque NM, Zone 7, Hot and Dry, No spray, Container grown. This is one of my most productive roses, it has never been out of flower during the growing season, and always seems to have a LOT of blooms on the bush. It's beautifully scented, although not at all hours of the day, you have to catch it at opportune times. The blooms hold a long time and go through subtle color changes, with apricot, pale pink, and blush white. Wonderfully healthy foliage, with only the occasional yellow leaf. I used to live in Paris for many years, so of course I had to have this rose when I saw it, and it's turned out to be one of my absolute favorites.

I'm a bit disappointed by this one. The fragrance turned out to be more of a myrrh-tinged aroma, which can be good or bad, but this is on the decidedly unpleasant side to my nose. The color is nice enough, but the flowers are thin-petaled and don't always open well (and when in clusters, the buds are sometimes crammed together, which doesn't help). Although the plants started out looking healthy and flowering well earlier in the spring, they've now largely defoliated from blackspot without spray, and the wind seems to have gone out of their sails.

This rose does very very well in my humid zone 7a garden. I bought this rose from the local hardware store and it’s likely grafted on Dr Huey.

My soil is clay, and often a little wetter than I’d like. I mounded this rose a bit higher than grade, and it has not had any problems from the clay. The flowers are large, fragrant and beautiful. The shrub is upright with strong canes. I’ve seen some black spot in my no-spray garden, and this rosebush seems to be pretty resistant-a few spots here and there, but not much. The blooms just kept on coming all season, and the shrub also grew a nice amount. I liked this rose so much that I ended up buying a couple more.

I am considering planting 3 of these 30” apart for a corner showstopper in a semi formal garden. But I am concerned it will be too big and out of scale. I too have clay soil in 8b. How big did yours get?TIA.

In 7a, it stays pretty close to 3x3. One of mine (I ended up getting five!) is maybe a little wider than the others. But they are very well-mannered here.
