Wow, that color's extraordinary (and the shot's excellent, too)! What are you feeding that puppy? :)

LOL: Lots Of Love... I guess, it was due to fall and less sunlight and/or lower night-temps.
But alas, it didn't survive our late cold winters. The scent b.t.w. was heavenly!

This has been absolutely terrific for us, other than its lack of fragrance. The color stops people in their tracks, the form is immaculate, and the plant stays quite healthy. Best of all, it's an absolute bloom machine, and heat doesn't slow it up much, if any. The blooms last a very long time on the plant; the thick, almost sculpted-looking petals hold up for a LONG time, without fading, and then instead of falling off, they age to an interesting rosy straw color that some people don't like, but I do. If you don't, by all means deadhead 'em.

This rose has no fragrance at all, dammit. If it did, it'd make an amazing low hedge. If it sported to white, I'd buy a half-dozen of them.
