This is a great little miniature here in Iowa (zone 5a). I wish more people would grow this one. Extremely hardy and needs almost no special care. Last year it was almost completely ignored but it produced some of the best flowers. The blooms are nicely shaped and come mainly one per stem but I did get a few huge candelabras from it too (about 15-20 blooms on a few of the larger ones). It is continuously in bloom - no down time even in the heat of late August!!! The blooms last a very long time in the vase if you like to bring them inside. It is a bushy little plant with dark green foliage. It is vigorous but keeps itself small. Disease resistance is very good - a little blackspot eventually but controllable. It has survived 5 cold winters with virtually no cover so I would definitely recommend changing the hardiness zone to at least zone 5a. The only complaint I have is scent but I can live without it on this one. An excellent rose.
