I purchased vouluptuous this spring, at first all it did was sleep, it really enforced to the sayin, (first year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap). I thought i wouldnt see any blooms on this rose til next year. Finally it bloomed, and wow, i fell in love with this rose. This rose holds its bloom longer than any rose in my gardens of 100 roses. It stayed on the cane for three weeks, and even then it didnt fall off, i cut them off. Iam impressed with this one, i didnot notice a scent and maybe thats because the bush is so young,only time will tell. I will update its winter hardiness next spring. this rose with its color and high bloom form and long lasting blooms makes it a winner and a must have for your garden.

The color of this rose is hard to believe. I can stare right at it, and it still seems as if the flower cannot be that intense a shade of electric deep pink. Truly beautiful rose. The description of the rose from Jackson and Perkins said that it had a slight scent; however, mine has no scent at all. With its great beauty, though, lack of fragrance doesn't bother me at all.

A non-stop blooming machine with vivid fushia/pink blooms. 2005 plant that has become one (if not THE) most favorite rose bush I own. Relatively disease free in my garden with no spraying.
