Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Jul 13, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Flowers are a peachy red-orange with yellow centers, fading to coral and eventually near white. I find the spent near-white blooms a distraction unless religiously deadheaded. Free-blooming, with more or less continuous bloom here.

Very clean, glossy, disease-resistant foliage. Does not need fungicide to keep it black spot free here, where the climate favors black spot.

Tends to send up longer canes that want to get over 2' tall. I'm not sure how tall mine would get if I didn't keep cutting it back, but it wants to get taller than 2'.

I don't know why this isn't classified as a miniature. It has 2" flowers and very small foliage.

The cultivar name is 'Chewmaytime.' "Oso Easy Paprika" is a trade name.
