It's a good one! Mine recently (since those photos!) got overgrown by a much too enthusiastic clematis, but I've pruned back the offending vine, and ZD is already putting out new growth and a couple of blooms. :-)

LOL... is there going to be a "run" on these at local nurseries now? I've heard good reports on this rose from people in many different areas, so I'm pretty confident about recommending it so highly... I hope you all find one and that it thrives in your gardens!

Critter,

I planted a couple of them on a homemade trellis over a very shady garden path. They didn't do very well the first year, but I had high hopes for year No. 2. They only grew to about three feet and had hardly any blooms.

I also planted Jackmani Clematis beside each one, thinking the purple and pink would look great together. I was so disappointed! The Clematis failed to put on the show that I expected. Maybe I should separate the roses from the Clematis? Although the Clematis didn't look good either. Maybe it's too shady where they are.

I bought the roses from Jackson-Perkins, so I know they should be good stock. I don't know what to do now!

I feed them regulr rose food and keep them watered and mulched.

Hmm... My MIL in NC has one that could be doing better, also. I was blaming the fact that it got moved, along with inconsistent watering (it's not on the irrigation system), but now I'm not so sure. Maybe they just don't do well in the Piedmont for some reason? I'm really baffled, since they do so well here and even further south (in Texas, for instance).

Did ya'll dig nice big planting holes, and put peat moss
and stuff in them? Your mention of shade makes me
wonder if tree roots limited your soil prep.
This is book-learning talking. Actually, one of mine in a
sorry place is thriving, and another one that is utterly
pampered is dragging.

Oh, and thanks a lot for showing this remarkable
rose to me. I gotta have one, too!

The soil at my MIL's place is amazing, so that's not the issue. I'm not sure what it could be... should've taken a closer look at it when we were there last week, but was distracted (fun) with niece & nephew!
