I've had this one in a garden next to Ebb tide for 3 years now, and this one is inferior in every which way. Not vigorous at all, flower color and form was poor, and it was an all around miserable plant, where ebb tide has done pretty well.the last can had finally died on me, and I took the shovel to it. I may give it another chance down the road, but not anytime soon. I hope you have better luck with it than I did.

I got this one a while back and it never did well, thanks to lawnmowers constantly pruning it. It's been 2 seasons, and there are two canes about a foot high with a bloom each. Having not seen this rose bloom in some time, it was even more spectacular, I took photos, but it never seems to look as good as it does in person.

I have slight blackspot on this one this year, some years it never seems to be affected, others it gets a pretty good infestation, particularly on leaves lower to the ground. I will report more as the plant grows and fills out more.
