I've had this rose for 1 year and it has been fantastic. It just blooms, blooms, and blooms, big beautiful flowers with not problems. No problems in the hot GA weather.

Part of a new line from Harkness (Amber, Pink, Red and Sunny are others) resembling the Weeks "Talk" series, at least in appearance -- a floriferous. healthy cushion of flower all through the season.

I have only grown this plant one season, so can only vouch for its health, fragrance and florifeousness -- and, of course, the beauty of the flower.
