I love this rose. It does grow taller than 6 feet in my zone so I would not put it in the front of a bed. It has a nice scent and is great in bouquets.

I like this low growing Romantica rose, it makes a great focal point for a border. It gets bigger in warmer zones. The blooms are such a pretty bright yellow color, they really light up the garden.
