*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased at Houston Garden Centers September 2010.
Vase shaped and bushy. Vigorous. Blooms almost continuously with a strong lemon fragrance. Heat tolerant. NOT shade tolerant. Can blackspot. My favorite white. I have 3.
4/18/2019- After letting my plants get leggy and floppy last year (I had only pruned down to 3 feet), I pruned them down pretty short this February, to about 6 inches. They are in show stopper condition right now. Thrips are getting around, but PJPII is withstanding that pretty well so far.
4/2/2021- Getting ready to bloom again. I cut them back to about 6 inches every year now, and this rose seems to enjoy that.
