Really liking this rose so far. Mine is own root. 100F weather color was nice. It is definitely a deep electric pink, but it does have a faint salmon hue to it. The fade shows a bit more of the salmon hue and seems to hold up to the heat. I am near sea level so even in August the UV is less, but I know the heat bothers it very little.

No real scent, but I don't care personally. The foliage is amazing. It's basically wichurana foliage as a small hybrid tea. More of a short grandiflora really. It has not shown any susceptibilities to diseases yet, and not a single leaf has dropped. 'Daybreaker' is 5' away and defoliated. No HT has beat out 'Claret' for mid-summer fragrance so I'm not expecting a miracle.

Looking forward to its maturity. Almost skipped out on this rose. No scent, "yet another Kordes", and not really my color range. Yet, it works out very nicely. I feel like this is what Brownell imagined when they began to make their wichurana-based HT series. 'Lafter' is honestly a specimen shrub.

Can anyone tell me about Fiji's growth habit? Does the bush have a rounded bushy shape, or a "vase-shaped" hybrid tea bush shape?

My Fiji plant is short and compact and rounded. It is an own root that is in it's second year(2018). The flowers are born on short stocky very prickly stems. The flowers do not have the high center that I associate with HT.
