Your are looking FABULOUS!! Hope you have a great day.

Joanne,

I looked for a picture of the "Joanne" shrub rose. Google search came up empty. I checked the Hortico web site and they do not have that rose any more. Last year, I gave the Joanne rose to Grow_Jo for a B-Day gift. Joanne had it in a large container and no room to plant it in ground for the winter. So the "Joanne" rose returned to my garden & spent the winter in the veggie patch. It was the 1st shrub rose to leaf out this spring. Unfortunately there was a hungry little critter at Grow_Jo's garden last winter and a few roses were it's food source. Since there were a few casualties, there is now room for that shrub rose at Grow_Jo's.

So Joanne (Grow_Jo) has received the very same rose "Joanne" for her birthday 2 years in a row!

Happy Birthday!

Joanne Too

VF- Very Fragrant
**not in the 2009 catalog

From HelpMeFind site:

Shrub.
Pink blend. Strong fragrance.
USDA zone 6b through 9b .

**I would say it is Pink blend Shrub.
Bred by Dr. Anthony Casimir Mekdeci (circa 1984) Canada.
Shrub.
Pink blend. Strong fragrance.
USDA zone 6b through 9b .
Dornröschen (shrub, Kordes, 1960) × Ames Climber

** Hardy Zone 3 for sure. It was the first to leaf out & no winter kill.

Joanne,
You will need to post a picture when it blooms. Appears to be quite unique, as with all Joannes

Thanks for the birthday wishes!
Had a great day visiting with a garden buddy and got some planting done too.

The "Joanne" shrub rose is now safely planted in my garden. Maybe it will be her forever home??? LOL.

Thanks for the information on her, Jo.

Happy Happy Birthday, Jo!!
It isn't a Joanne rose, but it's the sunniest flower I can find, from my last year's garden, and as I wish a sunny day for you, it's the best I can think of :-)
