I'm surprised at Jasmina. I wanted her for years. I have one, a sturdy own root, and she's only been in my garden one long season (fall planted the year before).

But her foliage is not as clean as I'd expect from a modern Kordes rose. She gets a lot of Blackspot so far. Her vigor has not been great, either. I have her in a hot site with fairly difficult soil that can dry out, so maybe she just needs more pampering. Maybe she just needs to grow up?

I'm not rating her yet, but I just wanted to give a possible heads up to folks. She may not be a terribly easy rose like some are. Most Kordes are so simple here!

I think your clues are "hot site", "difficult soil" and the fact many climbers require three years (or longer) to come into their own. Before you're going to get growth and flowers, they require roots under them. Hot, dry, difficult soil issue inhibit root formation. Few roots means few nutrients which can lead to malnourished plants. Under nourished and water stressed plants routinely suffer disease issues. It can be extreme enough to force otherwise bullet proof roses to become infected. I'd suggest doing whatever you can to alleviate the heat, dry and "bad soil" issues the rose is experiencing and then give it three years (at least, perhaps longer if the difficulties it experiences can't be fixed) to perform as expected.

Grows vigorously here, and it requires a lot of pruning. Balls badly and clusters are so heavy they droop. In perfect weather (not humid, not too hot, not damp), it is a spectacle.

Jasmina: The STINKY Kordes!!!!

In my opinion it has an unusual, but terrible scent... In fact that terrible, that it gets interesting! Even interesting to breed / cross with (too) good smelling roses, to obtain a balance in the offspring.
Some of the "best" perfumes are made this way too.( with civet and or cat-piss, or with the gland excretions of other animals)

Jay-jay: I love what you wrote .. I have a good laugh. People complained about Austin rose Gentle Hermione, comparing that to stinky baby diaper. Distant Drum's myrrh scent is another one. There should be a contest with an award given to the worst-smelling rose. Any nominations?

I don't mind a good Myrrh-scent. But until now Jasmina is my favourite stinker and a second-one is Mrs. Billy Crick.. very unusual scent too. I bought the latter especially for it's odd/deviating smell.
...But the best stinky fragrance is from Limburger cheese! I love it!!!

I googled Limburger cheese and it sounds yummy .. my favorite is blue cheese. For a good myrrh scent, nothing can beat Mary Magdalene, I'm seriously addicted to that rose' Frankincense scent. In the winter I miss Mary Magdalene rose, so I bought a bottle of expensive Frankincense oil, it is not as good as Mary's scent, but it helped me to breathe easier when my nose is congested.
