All of my roses are my favorites which is why I have chosen them. I have to admit to a special fondness for Honeysweet. The color is incredible! I don't think I could even describe it. Well worth putting in any garden. Zone 5

I love this rose. It is one of my favorite Buck roses. It thrives in my zone 5 garden. It is always in bloom, has a wonderful fragrance and makes a very nice cut flower.

I have had Honey Sweet for 6 years-one of my wife's favorites. If you plant , you won't be sorry. I remember many of Dr. Bucks rose plantings as a student at Iowa State, they had his new ones planted around old botany hall and near the Agronomy Labs where I had to walk each day. I was back for a University Conference in the early 80's, outside Kildee Hall was a bed of Honey sweet. Everyone commented about the roses outside the building. I asked for years at my local nursery where I could get that Rose! It wasn't available, got it from Sam Kedem Nursery in 2000.

It is fragrant and does well in our New Mexico-it's a keeper

This is a surprise favorite of my garden. It catches my eye in all stages. The new growth is very dark green with burgandy highlights, which turns to a rich, dark grass green as it ages. The blooms are profuse and each one is different from all the others. They surprised me with their size and elegance. One of the best and most problem free rose I have ever grown.

To follow up on my previous comment, my Honeysweet continues to amaze me. The small plant it only about a year old. It's two feet high and about 3 feet across. At it's height this summer it had eight blooms on it at the same time. I stopped dead-heading in mid-August and it's still producing blooms! Today is the 1st of November, there are three buds on it and there were three last week which bloomed. (Thank goodness I live in Florida or I know I wouldn't still have it in the spring!) All this and I only fertilized it once this entire season! Honeysweet is one amazing rose!
