Bombproof and beautiful! Blackspot in spring, but the canes and plant are vigorous and unaffected by the trait so common to bourbon roses. Rambles.

*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***

Purchased on ebay Fall 2011

10/22/2012- Plant is currently about 1x2 after cutting back this past August due to a serious chilli thrips infestation. She is bouncing back well and putting out nice growth.

June 2013- Potted and ready to move to our new house. She came out of the ground sort of messy, but has already started growing again.

Nov 2015- Planted in new garden

4/2016- has done very well in full all day sun in a bed that gets really dry during summer. Size is 3 x 3. Blooming like a champ.

2/28/2017- I have a happy Maggie here! Size is about 4w x 5h. Not dense so far though, growth is more open.

3/21/2017- Really impressive spring flush this year!

4/1/2019- Size is 10 x 10. In need of a pruning.

5/1/2019- I have officially tamed the beast! Pruned Maggie down to about 3 x 3 (she can take it), but whoever said this rose is thornless is outright crazy. I wouldn't say there are a large number of thorns, but they are insanely sharp and curved. I actually managed to get my ear hooked!! by an errant cane yesterday, and had to maneuver around to get myself released.

7/24/2019- Size has bounced back to a dense 5w x 4h and she's back to being bloomy. This is a great rose.

10/15/2021- Maggie had no problem with our Texas winter storm last winter where several other antiques struggled and a few died.
maggie is a medium red bourbon, almost thornless, upright, hardy to zone 5b.
