Does anyone know how disease resistant Elizabeth Taylor is?

She has been very resistant for me and very vigorous and winter hardy. I had no winter dieback to speak of in my zone 5b garden this year.

This Elizabeth Taylor rose is easily one of my favorite roses and quite possibly my favorite pink hybrid tea for its' many outstanding qualities. The bush is very vigorous growing and heavily foliaged that stay disease free with my normal spray program. The bush is very winter hardy as well and breaks dormancy early in the spring. The blooms are a lovely pink blend of dark and light and have alot of substance that make them last a long time on the bush and in the vase. To top it off, there is a wonderful strong sweet fragrance that sets this rose apart from most other roses with this kind of substance. The only thing I would truly alter on the rose are the darned thorns that are wicked as heck. They are thick and hard as nails and sharp as a needle. So, you work on this and around it at your own risk, LOL!!!! Get this one if you don't have it. YOu will be glad you did.
