Grafted on multiflora, first year growth was upright and narrow, reached nearly 5’. Healthy foliage and black spot resistant in wet, hot, humid New England summer. Bloom production was average.

This rose has it all: Strong fragrance, lovely non-fading color, plentiful, full, old fashioned blooms that are sun and rain tolerant and held erect on sturdy stems; abundant and attractive foliage, even growth, and has been impervious to blackspot (without spray) during hot and wet summer. Now we wait to see how hardy it will be. First year plant grafted on multiflora grown in z 5b NH in acidic loamy soil.

Tip hardy through 2 moderate Zone 5b winters. Abundant, long-lasting, eye catching blooms. Good black spot resistance.

Grown in zone 5b NH. Very hardy and vigorous once established. Spectacular first flush, after which it completely defoliates from black spot. I would not recommend in a humid climate.

Moore did live in a hot and dry climate. I think his climbing minis are some of his best introductions, but I hesitate to try them in BS central.

It’s a wonderful rose amd will remain in my garden as one of the few that I’m willing to spray with fungicide. I also grow Red Cascade which is equals or exceeds Magic Dragon in bloom production and has been remarkably BS resistant for me.
