A blooming machine! It's still putting out lots of blooms in September here in NE Ohio.
Pretty blooms but not salmon colored, just a dark pink for me, and they are fragrant. It's been disease free for me too! It's quite a virgorous miniflora, and has grown from a very small band this year to a rose bush that's already 2 ft by 2 ft.
