Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Feb 11, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Deep pink blooms are open and cupped to show off lovely yellow stamens with a touch of white at the base of the petals. Diameter 2", semi-double (9-16 petals), blooming in small clusters, in flushes throughout the season.

Habit spreading, well-branched. Medium glossy foliage.

Resistant to black spot and powdery mildew. In 1999, this rose won an ADR, the German trial of rose performance under low-maintenance conditions, with no fungicides, like the US Earthkind trials.

Hardy to Z5b.
