Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral CreativeCountry On Jul 13, 2010, CreativeCountry from Petersburg, IN wrote:

I was very excited to have this rose after seeing photos and information online. But after growing it this summer I am a bit disappointed. It has tripled in size and is a groundcover, but very little blooms and now in early July showing signs of blackspot. I have two, this one and the peaches and cream one, and they have both acted the same, very dense and thorny with little blooms that fall off very quickly. I am hoping they do better next summer or I am moving something else in that position.
