A lot of people in China commend SC for its strong fragrance and remontancy.
But strangely enough, though my SC has given me 3 flushes during spring(truly remontant), non of them seems to have "strong fragrance", only very mild smell....

Even troubles me more is that both the plants I and my mom grow(which are in different zones in China) died in the summer time, is SC not heat-tolerant?

I live in Atlanta GA. I bought this rose from High Country Roses. It looks like the photos during spring. Mid summer it loses its leaves, presumably to disease. I don't smell a damask scent. Mine is light and peppery. I sometimes wonder if mine is actually Sweet Chariot. It does seem vigorous for a mini rose.

This rose has lots of blooms and keeps on putting out more. They are small and a very pretty magenta.
I'm not getting much scent.
We are in heavy blackspot pressure right now as well as high heat. The lower leaves are yellowing and there is some blackspot on the lower leaves. The upper leaves look fine and it is putting out more blooms.
