Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Otkon On Apr 5, 2013, Otkon from Columbus, OH (Zone 6a) wrote:

This is a very hardy rose that can grow very quickly into quite a large bush. It typically produces four different-colored roses (an off-white, light pink, darker pink and an orange-y coral). The blooms cluster into beautiful bouquets naturally. I have to hard-prune mine twice a season because it can get unwieldy. But it thrives on. It is fungus-resistant but does attract sawflies. The scent is honey sweet.
