Father Jerome from warm CA reported that Versigny is 5' x 4', excellent rose. The bloom is a glowing apricot sunset color. It smells like a peach pie, yummy! The bush has large thorns, but very healthy in my alkaline clay.

Second year as own root in zone 5a: Green to tip through the winter. Compact bush, 2' x 2', thick-petals that stand up to the heat above 90 degrees. The scent is delicious apricot pie. This rose needs FAST-DRAINING soil (well-drained), otherwise leaves drop off in standing rain-water.

Great ! You taking the time to share your experience is much appreciated by all. If only more HMF website guests would do the same.

Pat Henry of Roses Unlimited own-root nursery recommended Versigny for its fragrance, that's why I bought Versigny in 2012, and again in 2017 ... hopefully HMF would change Versigny's scent to strong, since that definitely beats Sutter's Gold. Versigny is anong few scents that I would call "pure heaven", along with Jude the Obscure, Dee-lish, Duchess de Rohan and Comte de Chambord.

For comparison of this rose, vs. other own-root ORANGE roses, see below link:

I love this one! I'm growing roses in containers and it's a hard task but this one does very well in container!
It's disease resistant, bloom repeating is very good and it has a very nice delicate smell.
