Here in zone 7a central NJ, Unconditional Love self-cleans very well - a big bonus! Thank you Paul for bringing such a wonderful creation to us!

This rose is beautiful, vigorous, and a very strong bloomer. The rose has clusters of flowers like a polyantha does, but unlike a polyantha where the first blooms to open have faded and fallen before the last bud in a cluster opens, with Unconditional Love the individual blossoms last long enough for the entire cluster to be blooming at once. I have some blossoms that have been open for almost 2 weeks without yet falling, though they were finally fading just a tad. Most roses here get blackspot, but Unconditional Love tolerates it well with little defoliation and no slowing down of blossoming. I have it planted in a container in full sun next to the parking lot at my job, where I also have displayed about 30 other roses in containers. This rose has received the most compliments, several people saying it is their favorite of the roses that are there. It also lasts well in a vase, but to be honest doesn't have a very long stem. The fragrance is mostly from the moss on the rose rather than the blossoms, and is rather peppery.
I highly recomend this rose for those who grow in containers, and I would guess it would perform quite well in the ground as well. My garden is in eastern KS, newly rezoned to 6a.

This has some of the healthiest foilage I have ever seen. It is so dark and thick. The plant was covered in blooms all season; there was no break. No pests or diseases on this one.

Hi Paul, I'm here at HMF looking for a rose to buy in memory of my dad who died of cancer this year, and was unsuccessful until after viewing your page. After years of knowing you on GardenWeb, it was nice to purchase a rose by you. Unconditional Love fit my dad, he loved me unconditionally. It's the perfect rose to plant in his memory.
