i purchased purple tiger as an own root last fall, so i didnt really see it perform til this season, i was afraid i had made a mistake in purchasing this rose because of the other post. So far i have not been disappointed by this rose. It has bloomed for me every 6-7weeks. It is still very small, so it only has approx 4-6 blooms on it. I have not had any problems with black spotting and it is to small to cut for the vase.. But it is winter hardy for zone 6,pa, i donot mulch in winter because all my plant beds are rock to keep out unwanted moles, and purple tiger did just fine. So for me this rose does work in my garden.

It works well for me here in NJ/7a as well. Pretty much everything in my garden gets black spot in late summer, but this rose didn’t seem too bothered by it. It had a very lnon-prime spot (a little more shade from the willow tree than I’d expected) in wet, heavy clay. The flowers were gorgeous, the stems are plenty strong, and this little rose has been quite a performer for me.

i have been growing R&R for 2 seasons, this is a rose that is slow to start, it has remained small over the summer months, but has started to fill out, FINALLY!!! It is such an amazingly beautiful rose, (Iam a lover of the stripes) I noticed a medium rose scent, its the first time it started scenting,very good with disease resistance. The summer doesnot slow its blooming, the winter was not as harsh as normal last year (zone 6)but it did fine, i had no dieback, it will update on the survival of this winter. In short an excellent addition to any garden, a real show stopper.

Someone in HMF mentioned that Rock & Roll is better than Neil Diamond, and I agree, after having Neil Diamond as 2nd-year-own-root. My neighbor's GRAFTED Rock & Roll is 100% healthy, never see blackspots on that one for years, despite planted next to a tree !! My OWN-ROOT Neil Diamond is prone to blackspot .. I had to move it to full-sun & dry & alkaline clay, before blackspot is reduced. Rock & Roll is consistently fragrant, versus unstable scent on my Neil Diamond (sometimes strong, other times gone).

Great information to know. I'm in a blackspot prone area at the Gulf Coast, and have been wanting a red and white stripe. Much obliged for the report.

iam looking to add another red rose to my garden, i was looking at Dancing in the Dark, but can one say that this rose looks an awful lot like red DON JUAN CLIMBER, (which i own)? From the members picks it looks to have the same shape, what do you think?

Hello Members:

I have a question, is it possible to dig up a rose and have it return 5-7 years later? The reason for this question being that we dug up Eden Climber approx 5-7 years ago to place it elsewhere. Last fall i noticed a sprout that looked like a rose, winter came and i thought no more of it til this week, as spring temps started to warm things i began the prepping of the gardens, when i noticed a large climber taking over the side fence, it got very large very fast. Eden was the only rose i had planted there, could it be? How is it possible? so many questions

You may have left a tiny piece behind when you dug up the rose. Root cuttings of roses are not unknown. It is either going to be ‘Eden’ or the rootstock. Compare the leaves with ‘Eden’ initially if you have no flowers yet.
