Gardeners' Notes:

I inherited this plant when I bought this house. I have about 8 rose plants, but this one is by far my favorite. It's not supposed to grow in Ohio, but it's in a protected area next to the house and under the roof it seems to thrive here. I usually cut it back in the fall and it seems to be more beautiful this year than ever.

Really strong climber, thick canes, but is usually the first rose in my garden to get black spot. The plant is strong enough to do quite fine despite the black spot, and the flowers are gorgeous- similar to joseph's coat with colors changing due to photosensitivity, but much more vigorous. Fragrance is not bad either! If I were to rate it 1-5 1 being a knock out rose, 5 being Abraham Darby English rose, I'd give it a 3 or a 4. Repeats okay without much fertilizer or plant food.
