This rose continues to amaze me. NO disease and the most beautiful blooms.

The outermost petals fade to the palest pink while the inner petals keep their deep color. The coloration gives the entire rose bush depth. Stunning en masse.

A must have for someone looking for a rewarding low-care rose.

Blooms almost continually in zone 7 even through sustained temps in the 90's.

Is there anyone growing this rose in a warm climate that can report on it's rebloom in zone 8 or higher?

This is a tough, long-lived rose in zone 7 of N.C. I have had a few plants of this rose live over 10 years without any spraying or other care. I lost the plants when a hurricane came through and they were destroyed by machines removing downed trees. I have replanted 1 plant so far. The blooms are large and of a bright pink color. I wish the blooms were longer lived. It takes a break in blooming sometimes for a short while according to weather conditions. I like to cut off the hips, as they develop readily. The shape of the bush is not especially attractive, but you can plant several together. It does not like too much root competition or shade. It gets several feet high. It sometimes has a little black spot at the base of stems, but generally it is healthy without any help. When you apply fertilizer be very conservative.

Country Dancer performs very well in California's low desert
