The only bad thing about this photogenic beauty is that it balls in wet weather. It sure stands up to Maine winters!

Love this rose! It's tough, gorgeous and blooms prolifically, thriving in our zone4b garden with no winter protection. No pest or disease problems, either. Very thorny, but who cares given all its great qualities.

This rose has endeared itself to me with its beauty and toughness. It dies back to close to the ground in the winters here (I don't add any additional protection any more) and springs back into life with four-foot canes before the end of May, blooming profusely, with gorgeously shaped flowers, in even a somewhat shaded area. I've never seen any disease on it.
