This rose had very poor black spot resistance without spray in my garden near Washington, DC. To its credit, it seemed content to photosynthesize with green stems alone, and persisted for several years that way until I couldn't stand to look at it anymore.

I'm probably among the few that dislike this rose.

I don't particularly like the habit, and it defoliates from BS greatly here in NW Oregon.

I prefer its descendent Sparkle n Shine. The scent is a lot nice, and the color is A+. BS isn't an issue for it here. It, however, can be a little more cold tender.

Or Sunsprite, which is the old stand by. It does its job and smells nice. It's more cold hardy than both. At least here.

Really about as perfect example of what a floribunda should be as any rose. Extremely remontant, growing new stems even while the earlier ones are still in prime bloom. The early phase bloom colour is really striking, fading pleasantly. Not as fragrant for me as others describe, but a superb rose. Makes a great standard.

Agree on the fragrance. I encountered the plant from 3 different sources and don't understand how it can be described as strong as I barely smell anything, the blooms generally fade within a day to pale yellow. May be a climate issue though, being in Australia where it's often far warmer as it appears much of its praise comes from those in cooler climates

good resistence to disease, very fast repeat, very vigorous growth, very strong fragrance, non-fading color. Almost perfect.
the fragrance is like anise or cinnamon or sth like that , I don't like the type fragrance though it's very intense.
