Dear Celeste,

I hope all is well with you.

I am new to roses and HelpMeFind. I stayed up so late to see all your rose photos thank you so much what a delight. I have 'favorited' so many roses because of your postings.

My garden is in mid Michigan I think we share similar weather.

My question is how do you protect 'Guy de Maupassant' as he is listed as zone 7 and what amendments do you like to use?

Kind regards,

Hi, your 'Pretty Jessica' is beautiful! I was wondering how big she was. I am in zone 6 and was considering getting one to plant next to my front stairs.

Mine is very petite and bushy, under 3 feet tall and wide. But this is zone 4. I believe PJ is one of the smaller Austins. Mine throws a tremendous number of blooms for such a small bush.

Awesome. I'm actually looking for a petite bush. I was torn between SJ & Alnwick. I thought the Alnwick may nod more and was leaning toward SJ. Thsnk you for responding :)

I would like to share that this rose is quite hardy for a Hybrid Perpetual and comes through my zone 4b winters with little, if any, winter damage. As a bonus, the canes are nearly thornless, the flowers fragrant, and here it is very healthy. It is a very lovely rose. (see my photos i posted).

I'm glad to know about its hardiness. I've moved to PA from CA and look forward to having this excellent rose in my zone 5 garden. Also, it was the easiest rose to strike from cuttings I've ever seen... Always nearly 100% success with little effort from dormant cuttings. Also, first flush of bloom on 8 inches of growth after 2 months. A real doer.
