This Renaissance rose is described as a HT and as a FL on th "Plant" title page for it. Which variety is it?? Does it prefer to bloom in clusters or singles?

Interesting question, since both parent roses are classified as floribunda roses. However, all of the REFERENCES list the rose as a HT. None of the REFERENCES describes its blooming habit.

Very similar to Lord Mountbatten or Wild Blue Yonder in plant architecture, bloom size, plant size, and sprays.

Seems to be better classed as a Hybrid Tea rather than a Floribunda. I get a few clusters but a lot of the blooms are born single. Not real tall for me (mine are grown on their own roots) and might be classed as a Floribunda for that reason and because of the bloom form. The blooms are not as formal as most modern Hybrid Tea. Just my opinion. Very nice rose regardless of how it is classed.

Still a great rose, summer after summer. Always clean here. Always blooms a lot. Always fragrant. The women in the family love it. Its not my color, but it always performs. The form is on the romantic side, and not exhibition type. I like it regardless. It fits the idea of "summer ease" to me.

Mine hardly ever blooms. We have had hot weather; do you think that shut it down? Maybe it needs more fertilizer? It looks healthy and is in full sun.

It grows as an unusually vigorous HT, which confused me greatly. However, when I crossed it with climbers, because I wanted the scent in climbers, it produced a lot of non-blooming climbers, which led me to hypothesize that Renaissance's vigor may be coming from a climbing gene, much like America, which can be grown as an HT or a short, upright climber.
