This has been my first season with this rose and it has become a firm favourite. It has been continually in bud or bloom and has a wonderful fragrance. I have cut some for the house during the summer and they have lasted very well. Foliage has been incredibly disease resistant with no signs of black spot, which occurs frequently in my climate in the very southwest of England. I truly hope this continues next season.

Among the other values (healthy and pretty), this rose also seems to be quite hardy, no die back at all after a nasty frost (-15C and lower) this winter, when all its neighbors got killed to the ground.

I would recommend this variety to anyone wanting to grow "Margaret Merrill". It has similar blush-pink flowers but has much improved disease resistance. Like MM it is a quite floribuna-ish in habit as it produces its beautiful medium-sized flowers both singly but sometimes in large clusters of up to 15 blooms. It aslo has similar nice dark foliage which gives a good background to the whiteish blooms.
