I can't believe there are no comments yet on this fabulous rose. Vigorous, generous, black spot resistant this has been a spectacular rose in my Middle Tn garden under heavy disease pressure. In 4-5 years it has grown to be 6' tall and almost 10' wide. It takes a lot of space, but deserves every square inch of garden it takes. It has an excellent spring flush, produces flowers through the entire summer and has a strong fall flush when the summers aren't too dry. I can always count on it to have blooms that can be cut for the house. In my zone 6b-ish garden where it was between 0 and 5 degrees this winter it only had freeze damage on some of its branch tips. I don't spray, rarely water, and other than a few shovels full of horse manure twice a year (if I get around to it) don't give it any special care. This rose really deserves a wider distribution than it has!

In looking at our mother plant here in Central Florida I find that it is very clean. Having had very high rates of rain fall and high humidity for some weeks this plant appears to just shrug it off.

Having this variety in our nursery for several years leads me to judge the fragrance to be a rather strong one.

After reading some of the references I question whether the inclusion of Zone 6b is appropriate or if it might do well in a colder zone.

Generally Tea Roses do best in Zone 8 and higher, in Zones 7a and 7b in favourable microclimate situations. Zone 6b is definitely exceptional, but they can survive with care and protection.

It is always good for rose growers to receive feedback on desired varieties. It is the customer that is the ultimate judge of what grows well and where. This knowledge from the customer helps the small rose nursery to make the best decisions as to what to grow, to maintain plants in commerce for the present and future generations. Without this feedback a truly deserving rose might be lost. As a result of this very thing we hope to have this plant available in 2019.

Oh I HOPE SO!!!! I have wanted this variety for so long, it is a holy grail of mine as it was AARS the year I was born and it was already tough to find by the late 70's.
