I have grown this miniature for over 2 decades and it remains a great favorite. Very heavy bloomer with blooms disposed in sprays which sometimes can get quite large. Remontancy is extraordinary. One of the rare truly fragrant minis. Excellent plant which like a lot of lavenders benefits from budding onto a vigorous rootstock. In our climate protection against mildew is recommended. Good exhibition rose especially in spray class. Makes a nice tree rose.

I agree. It is constantly in bloom, with HT form, a vigorous grower, though I find the scent light but pleasant. I think it has good potential for breeding work as well.
