Gardeners' Notes:

This rose was sold as locally hardy at a nursery in my area, but did not make it through the very mild winter we had this year ('11-'12). I wish I had seen the hardiness rating on this site before purchasing it.

ok so I rarely, if ever, buy plants at W@lm@rt except herbs and some perennials.but I saw this one in there, the Piata Rose, and though it was small, it had the most saturated, intense orange yellow crimson colored flowers I had ever seen. I looked it up and it said "shade tolerant", so I put it on the East side of my house, which gets NO Afternoon SUN. Well, it's been 6 months since it was put in the ground at 1-2 feet tall., now it is over 5 feet tall, multiple leads and has Bloomed NoN-Stop and it is now early November ! I have Rooguchi clematis running through it as well as Rouge Cardinal (strong red purple velvet blooms) clematis which complements the orange color! It is all doing great and very dramatic. Made this part of my house jump with color! A Must Have!

We are new to roses. Planted Pinata, Dublin Bay and Joseph's coat in Vista, CA last spring. The Pinata grew and bloomed prolifically throughout the summer and today, 12/20, it has about 20 blooms in great shape. Looks like that will be the last bunch for this season. The Joseph's coat was not nearly prolific, but nice anyway.
