This is the most vigorous monster of a rose I've ever grown--and I have a 50+ rose garden. I trimmed a branch of it and popped it into a bucket of water, in case I might want to try propagating it, *a month later* it bloomed, in the bucket, five blooms that weren't there when I cut it. The shrub is 5 ft tall, 3ft wide, the blossoms are 6" across and it's covered with them almost every day all summer--AND I LIVE IN zone5b where it's not supposed to be tough enough to survive! I wish all roses were like CC.
