I bought this at the Mercer Arboretum March Mart 2 years ago and have fallen in love with it! This was my first rose purchase and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's grown like crazy and blooms constantly, even through winter. I know it's not terribly harsh here in Houston, but this winter was colder than usual and it did great! Can't wait to try growing some more from cuttings! I would recommend this to anyone who loves beautiful, bright, showy blooms and a rose that is truly low maintenance!
