Bought from Edmunds roses 4 years ago and takes some time to established. Best in partial sun, morning sun condition, also great bloomer in Spring and Fall blooming cycle than Summer in Northern California. Very fragrant, large bloom, many petals, disease resistant and good for cutting.

Is this rose truly fragrant? The 2001 Combined Rose List says not.

My Commonwealth Glory is quite fragrant. Very pleasing to my nose.

This Commonwealth Glory was a good first year rose for me. The blooms were the palest of apricots, almost more of a creamy white and have a good scent. I don't think it is as fragrant as the description implies however. The color is at it's apricot best during the Fall of the year when the weather cools. Plenty of petals of a very nice satiny look and feel. But the exhibition form is fleeting so you have to cut it at just the right time for show. The open bloom is more beautiful than the exhibition stage to my eye!! The bush is healthy and very compact so the stems could be longer. I don't think-my opinion-this is as very good an exhibition rose as it is touted to be. I think the fleeting form and short stems make it a better garden plant. In it's three winters, it seems to be very hardy and has no problem surviving the winter and breaks dormancy very early in the springtime. I think you would enjoy it as a garden rose.

I have updated the Availability tab on the rose page for 'Commonwealth Glory' to show it is carried in Pickering's inventory.
