Last fall when planted, I didn't know you are supposed to winter the small bands from Rogue Valley Roses in pots over winter. All winter I was sick that this new addition would perish from the cold winter. However, in the spring, when I lost Princess Charlene de Monaco and Kiss Me Kate to a late spring freeze, this tiny little warrior persisted and has even thrived through intense heat and aphid infestation. This is another rose that I am so ready to see in it's full, mature glory. I cannot BELIEVE that that tiny, tiny plant survived!!!!! This is another keeper! There's something about those Rogue Valley Roses-they must grow them extra tough.
