I started this Hot Princess as a budded maiden four years ago. It has proven to be a reliable garden rose. It stays vigorous and healthy with my routine spray program. It produces lots of hot pink flowers that are a bit more ruffley than I ever expected. It has no fragrance. It has sailed through my zone 5b/6a winters with no problem and breaks spring dormancy early on. The canes and stems are extremely thick on my bush and not too thorny to work around. The flowers last forever on the bush and in the vase, so it makes an excellent cut flower. The only real think I would change is to smooth out some of the blooms ruffles so they have a bit better form to them. Otherwise, I would recommend this to anyone. It's a good rose to have. Most exhibitors think it is one of the best exhibition roses out there.

This rose is very good for exhibition and for cutting to put in the vase. Perfect bloom form and exciting color that last forever. Just needs some scent to make it any better. My budded maiden last year, it was winter hardy on r. multiflora and pretty vigorous catching up to the Grade 1 bareroots with little trouble.
