I agree with the first comment. This rose is an easy-doer. It is HUGE here, 3' T x 5'W. Everblooming. When I had it, it would ge autumn mildew, and the blooms dulled easily. But it was consistent, vigorous, and easy. When I bought it, it was sold as a small polyantha. Nothing about this rose is small, except the blooms. It is essentially a landscape rose in size -- a bit bigger than Bonica or Scarlet Meidiland.

Thought I'd mention as a new member, that this is my first comment. I've been growing "orange triumph" for years, though you could never have called it a big success. But two years ago, I dug it up and brought it inside my solar greenhouse for the winter and as you might guess, it grew into a real champion. So the following spring I planted it outside again, in a different spot, and it had a great summer and made it through the winter (zone 5a) just fine, with protection. It is still finishing another bloom cycle, though it's almost November. It's just a very pretty, underrated rose for its type - to me, anyway, it looks like a polyantha that grows like a vigorous floribunda.
