I know I've already commented on this rose but I have to again. This thing is ridiculously vigorous. The attached photo shows GFT in the middle left of the bed. He's about 4-5 feet tall. 2 new massive canes are sprouting this week (04.06.2012, 7b). I'll definitely load up some photos when he blooms. I could not recommend this rose more strongly.

I agree. Even here in Phoenix it's one of the most vigorous roses that I planted last spring (another one is Zulu Royal). First summer I thought I lost it. But fall brought a surprise and the rose started growing to my delight. Spring showed really what this rose is up to. Now it's tall and well branched. And still tries to bloom! I didn't cut flowers for vase that often, so can't attest how long they last. Nice fragrance. Looks like it is happy here in Phoenix area with amended high alkaline soil, dry extreme heat, sun until around 3pm during summer, own root. Can't wait to see what next spring will bring.
