Some observations of this Rose:

Blooms last an extremely long time and fade to pink in direct sunlight. Fading in strong, direct sunlight will start to occur midway through the second week of a bloom. Vase life is also extremely long, I've had a few cuttings in a vase with sugar water for over 2 weeks now and they have not faded or wilted. This Rose also holds onto it's petals till the very end of the bloom, in fact I have not seen it drop a single petal and you will more than likely deadhead before the petals drop.

Stems are stiff and strong with prickles that form 2 leaf nodes below the bloom, which is about 13 to 15cm, or about 5,11 to 5.9 inches.

A rose with this name and comparable description is listed as Selbar 0134 in the Catalogo Rose Barni Autunno 1990-Primavera 1991.

Selbar 0134 is listed as the climbing version of 'Asso di Cuori'

In that catalogue both Asso di Cuori (pags 6 and 36 have the same "code of identification" i.e. Selbar 0134). Also in the catalogue autumn 1994-spring 1995 (pags 12 and 38). The selling codes of the two roses, however, are different (01022 for the "normal" and either 15004 (bare root) or 16004 (in pot) for the climbing.

I was afraid that this rose does not perform well in the southeast. I was wrong. In its second year in the ground it is close to 5 feet tall, produced very beautiful large blooms even in the extreme heat of the summer in coastal zone 8. The flowers last very long as cut flowers. But, if rain is in the forecast, wet weather spoils you better cut the blooms for the house and not let.

My MIL grows this rose in Stockton, CA, and it's her favorite red. It gives tons of roses with great form that she makes bouquets with, and takes to her church. Very good form, and long-lasting. I'm going to get one this year.

I just got one this past winter. It seems to produce a lot of blooms but they are rather small. My question is: Do the blooms on Ace of Hearts get larger when it gets established? In other words after the bush has been in planted in a spot for years - years later, when the canes are thicker, are the blooms bigger?

I planted one of these this year and so far all the blooms are tiny--miniature rose size. I certainly hope and expect it should eventually come to normal size but it may take a couple of years.
UPDATE: My Ace of Hearts bush never really grew vigorously at all. It slowly declined over a couple of years and then died over the winter. I don't think I would getanother to replace it as it never impressed me at all.
