Gardeners' Notes:


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

A very fragrant 4" rose with up to 41 petals. Its color does not fade to white in heat as with many pale colored roses. Blooms in flushes throughout the season.

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.

A beautiful nearly thornless Buck rose. I cut mine back each year to about 3', and it's currently around 6'. Loads of nicely formed pale pink flowers from spring to frost.
