*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased from Rose Petals June 2011.
General Notes: I really love this rose. It has grown a bit sideways so far, a little under 2ft high by 3 ft wide. Very lightly scented. One of those roses where the stars have to be aligned just right for me to catch a whiff. Blooms reliably even while so young.
August 2013- Dug up and potted for move.
June 2014- Waiting for new garden spot to be ready.
2/3/2015- planted in west tea row.
2/6/2016- survived the summer with temps over 100, no rain, and only two instances of supplemental watering. Obviously it didn't bloom during that terror, but there was no dieback, and flowers returned when the rains did.
4/2016- size is 3 x 3
10/2016- Another summer with no rain, and a dry early fall so far. Still doing well.
1/2017- Came through several freezes and even snow without any dieback.
2/28/2017- Just under 3 ft tall, but 6 ft wide. Growth is not dense yet, this lady is just stretching out her arms.
11/28/2018- Maman Cochet is now just under 6 feet tall and 8 feet wide. Still Stretching.
