When sgmc has a few blooms on, you can walk by wondering, what is that amazing scent? It is clove and something bright like citrus almost and rose. If it could be bottled...oh boy. Cut a few blooms for the house and it is magical, like no other rose.
Roots easily from cuttings. I have it to trade.

Prosperity is well named! it blooms so generously and last a long time without fading. Foliage is a great foil to the pure white blooms. A winner!

I agree. I got this rose as a 'filler' for a partially shady, rather awkward location. I didn't expect much of it but it has completely won me over for so many reasons: fragrant white blooms that just keep on coming (mine was still blooming in January!), healthy gorgeous foliage without a speck of disease, beautiful arched weeping form, quick growth, tolerance of shade and difficult soil/location. What a amazing rose - well named, indeed. I'm glad I took Liz Druitt's advice and tried this rose - it is definitely one of my favorites now.

I wonder if this is one of the once bloomers that does well in the shade of deciduous trees...

I have a veilchenblau climbing up my maple tree. It is extremely healthy and hardy. It took about 3 years before it really took off. I am in zone 5/6 in Missouri.

My Veilchenblau is currently overgrowing a Buddleja davidii which in our climate tends to keep its leaves in winter. Veilchenblau is not the least bothered by this fact. It has grown 4 meters (12 feet) high in the 3 years of its life here. And now, in January, after short, but severe frosts, the top branches still have all their leaves. (I once saw Veilchenblau at a nursery in winter where it formed an evergreen wall-like hedge.) Growing next to blackspot-infested "presumed to be Mary Rose" and only a couple of feet away from the mildewy mess that Paul's Himalayan Musk is in my garden, Veilchenblau has never had one diseased leaf, and I don't spray at all. So, while Paul and Mary are going to be acquainted with my shovel (to move them, or to get rid of them), Veilchenblau will be King of the Garage Roof. This rose can't be praised enough.

I use this rose in a mixed shrub border with rosemary, blueberries and cleyera. It hedges beautifully, repeats fast.
