I have had a Cheer Up tree rose since at least 1998 having purchased it at the Tiny Petals Nursery (now defunct). This rose can be somewhat susceptible to white powdery mildew, but it gets over that easily and quickly. It doesn't get it as bad as some in the same area (like X-Rated). The colour is a beautiful red-orange that fades a bit with strong California sun. I have heard it referred to as a "Mini Tropicana". This plant is an absolute blooming monster! Blooms are not supposed to have much fragrance, but mine is one of the most fragrant minis I have. I initially had this plant in a pot when I had a condo and it was in the shade some of the time depending on the time of year, so it was somewhat shade resistant, but it truly flourishes in full sun. It is great for cutting and my lovely fragrant blooms last easily a week. Foliage is a nice dark shiny green. I think it is an excellent rose with a little care.
