Inherited this from my mother in law, as it was a gift from her late husband. Even though there is no fragrance that I've ever noticed, this rose is a blooming machine! Constantly in bloom, even thru the worst of the heat, and the flowers have wonderful many-petaled form like the pictures. Even Chilli Thrips seem to not bother it as bad as some of the other roses.
I bought this bare-root at Christmas time 2012 at Lowes. Planted it after soaking overnight. Kind of bought it on a whim. We wil see how it does. After hearing some of the less than glowing reports about stinginess of bloom and short life of flowers, I hope I didn't make a mistake.
