Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Jan 20, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Very large creamy white 5" flowers, double (22 petals), cupped to flat form, in small clusters. June flush with scattered later bloom.

This was listed among the top performers at the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden in 2010, where no fungicides are used. It is highly resistant to black spot and powdery mildew.

Usually sold own-root. Part of Bailey's Easy Elegance collection.

US PP # 15,574 2005

This rose is listed as a shrub rose but in my experience it grows more like a floribunda -- it has a vertical growth habit and has stems long enough for cutting. The flowers form in clusters at the end of the long vertical stems. Blooms are not long-lasting, and fragrance is light.

I bought two of these last spring and have them buried in ground to try to get them through the winter. This rose is reported to be quite hardy. However, we are having the "Winter from Hades" and I am wondering of any of my roses will survive. If these survive this winter, I will give this rose the strongest "thumbs up" that I can give.
