I forgot to mention that he sets nice, orange hips, too. But he needs deadheading until you want the hips. Otherwise, he'll have hips all summer and not bloom nearly like he should. He's not as tall as New Dawn after all, btw. Here, he tops out at maybe 11-12 feet and then focuses on lots and lots of basals (so far).

Can I just say Wow?!!! The first year is pretty, but man is this rose gorgeous after he grows up a bit! In my weather (NC, hot, humid) he's mainly apricot fading to buff, but there are subtle variations in color that are so pretty. The flower form gets fuller with age, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Disease resistance is awesome (A+). This one is going to be much taller than 8' here, though. It's so vigourous that I'd expect something along the lines of New Dawn, but obviously I don't know quite yet :) Near continuous flowering. Not a lot of scent, and something vaguely myrhh-like to my nose most of the time. Try this one, though, y'all! You don't hear much about him, but he's a big favorite of mine now :)
