I've grown most of these roses in Houston and was one of the Texas rose growers polled for recommendations for EarthKind roses years ago. One point I'd like to make about Spice is that it will bloom in partial shade. I'm growing one under a Live Oak Tree that has been pruned up. The bush does get some south and western sun, but it's close to the tree and has to contend with the oak's roots as well. It's amazingly healthy and full of blooms. I've never seen any disease on it.
thanks thats something rose growers are always looking at: will it take some shade? it s important because there are roseaholics that have used every bit of full sun and have to move into the shade some lol
