Your description of this plant states that it is a once-bloomer. I have a very small plant, about two years old. It blooms heavily in spring in my NC garden (zone 7), puts on new growth and blooms several times or more during the summer and fall.

It gets plenty of water, is in good soil, and is fertilized by 'Once' rose food.

It also is extremely blackspot resistant.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post your comments. This is exactly the type of feedback we love at HMF. We invite everyone to take a few moments to share their experience with the roses they grow. This is how we'll all learn how these roses sometime differ from their "official" descriptions and how they fare in different environments.

Can you please tell me where you got yours? I have one that is supposed to only be a once bloomer (from david austin roses), and I would rather have a repeating one

How large is the bloom? Is "blooms so large branches bend down with their weight" accurate or just hyperbole? That was a description I foun on the label on a waxed 5&10 plant.

I have two of these rose bushes, and the blooms are large. They are approximately 3" diameter, and there are multiple blooms on a stem, between 3 and 5. The lower branches on my bush do bend down, but primary central branches remain strong. It is a beautiful large bloom and very fragrant.
