This is among my best performing roses, and is very clean most of the time in my disease prone garden/climate. It's a heavy bloomer for me, I love it.

Good resistance to blackspot, but not to mildew. I'm thinking of replacing it just for that reason.

I live in a place where powdery mildew is really abundant during Spring and Fall. This rose has not shown any signs of it for the past 3 years. So my experience differs. Btw, many a rose can be induced to get mildew in mildew places if stressed by drought or lack of nutrients.

The linked patent states parentage as: Controlled pollination: seed parent unnamed seedling (Roseromatica x Heckenfeuer), crossed with pollen parent ‘Taneitber’ in May 1993. Hence, (Roseromatica X Heckenfeuer) X Taneitber.

Thank you! 'Roseromatica' is most probably 'Roseromantic'.

I wondered about that. I hope we can narrow it down somehow to be sure.

So far, this rose has done well in my hot humid south Louisiana garden. It resists BS pretty well, and it grows vigorously. It has not been a big bloomer and its canes tend to break very easily. It will also grow them at wierd angles if the cane only partially breaks. It's a challenge for me to prune. Still, I like it though it is not one of my favorites, and it tends to be pretty low maintenance. The blooming may improve as it gets more established; it's only been in my garden for two years. So far, so good.
