'Tuscan Sun' is extremely vigorous here in central NC and blooms like crazy. I've had no real trouble with blackspot using only basic prevention measures.

We have only had Tuscan Sun for one winter and I was surprised this spring. I mounded a foot of soil to protect it last winter. TS had live cane 6 inches to a foot above the mounding. Secret (planted the same day) is next to it and canes died back a few inches below the mounding. A friend in Colorado had the same experience with TS last winter. We are happy to see live cane above the mounding in spring (Montana zone 4/5).

My pleasure, one winter isn't much to go by but it has convinced us to get a couple more Tuscan Sun. Deb is crazy about the rascal and I can't help but like a rose that blooms so much.

My thanks to every one at HMF. I've used HMF for years to research roses. I made time to check the new features here a couple months ago. I've been rating and commenting about the roses we grow ever since. HMF was a great site before and is improving. The Q & A forum is the first site I check when I get online in the morning and drink my first cup of coffee. HMF is often the only site I have time to check during the work season. Deb sends her thanks to y'all too. I need to check the clematis side of the site more often.
