I love this rose. It is an older variety and there is a long period of time between flushes, but it is such a nice color and the form is always spot on. What huge blooms - mine average about 6 inches (not the 4 inches listed) with no extra care. Not very many places carry it anymore which makes me a bit sad but I was lucky to find one bagged plant of it 3 years ago at a big box store - and it was correctly labeled for a change. Does need good winter protection here in Iowa but it does reward you for your efforts.

This particular seedling appears to have vanished. Maybe I moved it and it will pop up somewhere else but it looks like I am now down to 2 of these seedlings. Hopefully they will bloom for me.

It happens! Sometimes you discover them years later. ;-)

Hi Andre, did this seedling ever flower for you? I'm curious about what level of cresting it may have expressed. Thanks! Kim

These seedlings still have not bloomed - they have remained very small too. I will be giving them another year and then will consider discarding or I may consider reevaluating their location too as part of the problem might be where they are located (and neglect). The only reason why I have been patient and kept them is because they are a unique cross and I really, really want them to bloom for me.
