NW Ont, Canada, USDA Zone 2, I had Nearly Wild for four years, it bloomed continuously, no winter protection, some winter kill, but would come back beautifully after spring pruning. I found that this rose did not like to be dry. Disease free, (if I noticed any leaves turning yellow, I would remove the whole stem immediately). Size stayed at about 18" H, x 2' W. Nearly Wild finally died after 2 years of competition with weeds due to total neglect (because of personal health problems) but is on my list to plant again because I enjoyed it so much.

I bought 2 Nearly Wilds on clearance from our local K-Mart. Predictably, they were very spindly and full of blackspot. With organic spraying, they did become BS free but they did require regular spraying to stay that way in my garden. The first year it bloomed but not prolifically. The second year was much better, and it quickly grew to 3x3. This was its 3rd year, and the blooming was even better, but it developed mildew, which it had never done before. Unfortunately, due to a color change scheme, these bushes were removed to make way for Abe Darby. They were blooming until the end and hopefully are doing the same for their new owner. Definitely a worthy rose--it just needed spraying to stay healthy.
