Exceptionally beautiful, wonderful fragrance. It looks like shrub although it is "hybrid tea". Compare with Duftzauber which makes huge tall spikes with sparse leaves and which is really "hybrid tea" (not a shrub; hard to have it as a garden rose). If I am not mistaken; and if did not mistakenly labeled it last year.

It didn't survive Canadian Winter 2017-18 in pot; but many others (marked as zone 5b) survived. But I did nothing although planned to put it in garage for Winter; didn't have time.

This year I bought two from Hortico where it is known as "Taboo" rose. I'll plant one in sandy soil, and another one in pot. I use 16 gallon planters "CAPI EUROPE"; of course I need to move it in garage for Winter.

Information on the "description" page for this rose indicates it cannot be shipped from Canada to U.S. customers, but I think that information is outdated. I ordered this from Palatine, in Canada, and it arrived at my house in Illinois in April. It's doing fabulously and should be blooming soon.

You are correct, thank you for taking the time to alert us to this outdated message.

My Barkarole/Taboo is starting on its third year in my garden and I'm wondering what I can do to help it become the lush, vigorous rose it is described to be. It's looking a little better this spring than it did last year, but still a bit sickly. It came sickly, and I didn't think it would survive, but since it has, I am optimistic that it can really take off. It does get lots of sun where it is but the soil is poor and it may be that it has not been getting enough water in the prior two years, so I've added extra drippers to it and am soaking it once a week with the hose. Should I feed it extra, or will that just add extra stress?
