Oh man.... I bent over backwards to find this rose and it was definitely worth the effort!

I have been wanting a true orange rose for a while... got a Tropicana because I read it was orange... yeah, not so much; Tropicana more of a peach. Then I started digging and found this one... It's not reddish... pinkish... peachy... it is as ORANGE as you can GET! Now that's what I'm talkin' about!! And it smells FANTASTIC!!

It is a little succeptible to blackspot... but then again EVERYTHING is in my area but with regular treatments, it's good! Also, it doesn't really like excessive heat (which as of late there has been plenty) as I am noticing the blooms aren't as double (the same thing is happening to my Midas Touch too). I am sure once the Summer passes and we get into the cooler months, it's gonna go BONKERS. I can't wait as it is VERY bright! You practically need sunglasses to look at it!
