Gardeners' Notes:

This is a quite hardy shrub rose. It survives a NE Wisconsin Zone 5 winter with only leaf-mulch protection. In general, what is buried by the mulch survives, while what is above the mulch dies.

I have had one for many years and it keeps on growing and blooming. But my rose has a problem. According to the catalog where I bought it, it is supposed to be blaze orange. Mine is... pink. It seems as if every time I have a rose that is not true to color, it ends up pink. The pink is tinted toward red and is not all that attractive, but I keep the rose because it is hardy.

Positive rating for toughness and survival; negative rating for the actual flowers. I've had this shrub rose in my garden for the last 6 years or so, and I don't think I've ever had a bloom that actually opened. The petals stick together and do not open, eventually turning into little brown buds and then falling off the plant. I will be replacing this with a variety as soon as I can.
