I have had Neptune in the ground for a year and a half. It is grafted to fortuniana rootstock and I live in central Florida, DaytonaBeach. All I got to say is this rose is a beast. It grows like a weed, with very srtong canes. Does not seemed to be phased at all my our hot/humid summers. Very disease resistant and constantly putting out new canes from the bud union.

I agree that it is very vigorous in moderate Winters. I live in the San Francisco Bay area and I keep cutting it down from below the eaves.

I live in Daytona Beach,Fl. and this rose out performs and shrub rose out there including my neighbors knock outs!!!!!!!! Mine are grafted to fortuniana rootstock and after one year in the ground all x5 bushes I planted are 5x5 or bigger. I water once or twice a week, feed every 3 months, and only sprayed once in March. It is now the end of July......no black spot or bugs!!!This rose is really a care free dream!!!!

Have had Hot Princess in the ground for almost a year. It is a very vigorous plant and
beautiful repeat bloomer. It is not pink in my garden at all, more of a mauve. Unlike what other have wrote, mine has a very strong old rose fragrance. The blooms don't last long on the bush, but it produces more than a dozen at a single time, and excellent repeat. For being in the ground only 9 months, it is going to be a large upright bush and with my spraying program seems to be quite healthy!!!

This is a very healthy,vigorous grower with excellent repeat. I would call the color a light orange to peach. Lightly scented flowers, that has beautiful red/purple new growth and lovely upright habit. Very healthy foliage with mt biweekly spray program. Nine months in the ground and it is already over 5 ft tall and 4 ft wide. Easy rose to grow here in Florida, thanks to Nelson roses in Apopka, Fl. for recommending it.
