Gardeners' Notes:

Positive ReallyRed On Feb 23, 2012, ReallyRed from Oak Park, CA wrote:

I admit to a sentimental attachment - we grew them in NJ and loved them. They grow like crazy here in Southern California though the color is less vivid in our sun. Nevertheless, one of my favorite roses and when I see them, I tend to buy more!

Love this rose on the bush. The color is beautiful, performs well all season and it's one of the largest roses in my garden. However, the reason I give it a neutral rating is that it makes for a poor cutting rose. I enjoy bringing my flowers inside the house and this one doesn't make it past a day.

Medallion is a great rose! It has bloomed consistently all summer and has been relatively free of black spot, as well, in spite of our wet spring and more rain in August than we normally receive in our area.

This rose produces gorgeous flowers like crazy all season, but it extremely susceptible to black spot. I give it a neutral rating because although it requires a lot of work, the size, color, and number of blooms make it worth it!

Neutral mhay On May 22, 2006, mhay from Indianapolis, IN (Zone 5a) wrote:

It grows in zone 5a with winter protection. Rapid upward growth, easily 5ft tall by second bloom. Gets a bit "leggy". Large 6 in blooms with nice scent.

This rose is beautiful and a heavy bloomer. Very pale pinkish-peachish-apricotish color which really stands out. Lovely bush!

AARS 1973. This is a gorgeous rose with 7" blooms. It grows very quickly and the plant gets huge. Leave it lots of room.
