I've grown Salute for 2 years. I love it! Rich deep red, prolific, and very disease-resistant for me. I live in hot, humid blackspot territory. Slightly fragrant as a cut flower, I smell nothing from it outdoors. This rose replaced my Black Jade mini; only a shade lighter in color but equally beautiful form and the blooms last much longer and don't burn in the sun like Black Jade.

How is the form of the flowers? I'm considering getting a better red than I have now. Blackspot resistance is key!

I grew 3 plants of Salute in a part sun garden zone 5/6 in hot humid Lincoln, NE. They were covered with blackspot and did not do well in my garden. Other miniatures were blackspot free in my garden.

Thanks. I have a Harm Saville right now & it gets terrible blackspot.

Karen & LoveMyRoses & everyone else,

Thank you for sharing your experience but we would ask if you could go one step further and use the Ratings feature of HMF to record your experience. You'll see there is a specific plant rating for "Disease resistance".

It would be tremendously useful to have more site guests take the few minutes to rate the plants they grow. Your ratings are anonymous but you can change your ratings anytime should your opinion change.
