Andreas Barlage says 'Gruss an Coburg' is quite rare in Germany. He loves to grow it in his garden because of its delicately shaded flowers and strong scent. The plant is resistant to cold weather, but it is as susceptible to black spot as most Hybrid Teas. On the other hand, he has never seen a hint of mildew on its leaves.
