Lemon fragrance can be smelled from up to 10 feet away. Some blackspot in my humid zone 7a Maryland, USA garden but otherwise healthy. 2nd year grafted plant.

Tidbits for those interested, Certified Roses lists this rose as a climber instead of a shrub (same breeder code) and gives a height of 7 feet.

Thanks Cori! Do you know anywhere to buy them own-root?

It’s currently a hard one to find through mail order at all, but I would expect that to change since it’s still new. I bought mine locally at a nursery. Maybe try calling Cetified Roses?

CR says that they are grafted only, but thanks!

If you haven't found one yet, there is an own-root in the Save the Roses! auction being held in Oct. in San Diego. Plants can be shipped anywhere in US.

Lavender-colored roses are best as grafted. I grew lavender/purple roses like Angel Face, Barbara Streisand, and Heirloom as own-root, and these were WIMPY and TINY, shorter than 1 foot, and blooms were really tiny since the bush is so small & weak. But my GRAFTED Angel Face and Heirloom roses were bigger & more vigorous & larger blooms. I bought 2 Lavender Crush for $5 each as GRAFTED-on-Dr.Huey at Walmart's late summer sale .. they are doing great as 2nd-year rose, lots of blooms, and blooms are large & amazing lemon scent. The one in partial has longer-lasting blooms than the one in full-sun but equal amount of blooms.
