Neutral coriaceous On Jul 16, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Its color does not fade to white in heat like many pale colors.

Highly disease resistant. The New York Botanical Garden gives this rose a very high performance rating in its (no-spray) Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden.

This rose is hardy to Z4.

Quietness is going gangbusters in my Zone4b garden, with no winter protection. It's outstanding, no disease problems and this year my 4-year-old bush has at least 50 blooms as of June 3rd, 2010.
