I had same problems like other comments when I start grows this rose two year ago in container. But I realized that foliage is perfectly fine in winter-spring time and prone to mildew from late spring. I just igore this bush then left under the shaded area. Lately I don't see alot of mildew on it, plant is not much vigor but produce quality bloom with visible green shade.

Gorgeous huge blooms. Looks like hundreds of petals! Just bought it, it looks to be thriving but we'll see how it does during our hot Arizona summers. Green tint shown in pictures is not nearly as intense on mine, it appears mostly white.

Does anybody know why the nursery I purchased this from had this listed as an Old English rose? I see it is actually a new variety, and I was curious what this meant. Thank you!

Question: A friend in the Santa Barbara, CA area (up in the hills, not close to the ocean) bought this rose a couple of months ago and is finding that it's now covered with mildew, rust, and blackspot. Granted, we've had lots of rain the past couple of months, and it's a young plant and may just need to mature some more, but I'm curious if others have had these problems with it. It's supposed to like cooler climates, but it's not liking her climate right now.

I bought it too at the beginning of this year's bareroot season and I also live in the coastal foggy zone in Southern California. The catalog was very fair on this one, stating "Not for the faint of heart, this rose is a true collector's rose and will need special attention for best results." That means it MUST be sprayed regularly. I do spray and I like mine. If a person does not want to spray, then this is not the rose for them, and it sounds like your friend may be in that group.

Thanks for your feedback, Rosaholic. She didn't see the catalog comments or any other information on it before she bought it on the spot when she saw it at a local store, the first either of us had heard of it. We both loved the name and the color it's supposed to have in its blooms. No, she doesn't spray but selects plants that do well in her location, usually. She'll have to reconsider her approach to this one or find a new home for it. Great information, and thank you very much for sharing it!
