USDA zone 5b through 9b. Can be used for cut flower, garden or shrub. Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant. Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom. Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.
Tim Clapp of Mattocks Roses says, "Probably the most fragrant of all roses 'Buxom Beauty' is brand new this year and I just cannot rave enough about it. The flowers are enormous and the scent even challenges 'Fragrant Cloud'. The added benefit is it has very good disease resistance for a Hybrid Tea.
In Comments the parentage is said to be Seedling x Lady Like. The 'Lady Like' is probably the 1989 Tantau rose TANekily.
