I have grown this rose for four years in Northern Kentucky zone 6b. It is very under rated in my opinion ARS gives it a 7.3. I would give it an 8+ for our zone. Can be susceptible to Black spot when the temps and humidity soar, but generally this is an extremely healthy plant. It responds well to anti-fungal sprays. Though vigorous it is not a rampant grower and is easily trained. We have it on an arbor. Purchased from Pickering in Canada our plant has nary a hint of pink...very white with the slightest ivory at the inside and base. I absolutely love this rose. It has the same fragrance as Peace. It takes it a year or so to develop but it is worth the wait.

I got this rose from Antique Rose Emporium (an excellent nursery) and planted in Dallas TX in the extreme summer of 2011. It was in shade getting only morning sun. It covered a trellis in one season providing the most equisite porcelan-like salmon pink flowers with a delicate perfume. I think in time the flowers would be larger as these were very small 1"-2" size but in long trusses. It was almost thornless save for those occassional small black prickles which are very sharpe. I love this little rose and plan to plant it again here in OH.

The flowers on my one are only 1" across too, and it is now in it's 3rd year. I have grown it previously, and that one also had flowers only 1" across.
Also, I did transplant a 1yo plant, which took off, despite neglect. However, I discovered later, it was benefiting from a leaking sewer. As there was, oddly enough, no smell from the sewer, it benefited for quite a long time!

Hi Hebe, Glad you like this little rose too...well, small flower, big plant. I'm happy you commented as I had forgotten about this little beauty. Lost 16 bushes to rose rosette last summer so I can use this as a replacement! If you like smallish climbers I got an real find at Hortico last year..."Awakening"- trusses of porcelain pink blooms and it's thriving on a mostly shady north facing wall...good luck...John in Cinci

Hi John, Yes, I've long wanted 'Awakening', but where to put it? If 'Adelaide D'Orleons' doesn't perform (growing up a small tree), I may well replace her with it though.

This is one of my favorite roses for arrangements because it looks good in all stages of bloom . It was a great bloomer in the Bay Area. I hope it does as well in Cincinnati now.
