Gardeners' Notes:

Here is a glorious floribunda that should be considered by anyone interested in growing roses. The plants are very bushy and rounded, about 4' - 5' by seasons end. The blooms come singly or in clusters on stems suitable for cutting and don't require deadheading to repeat bloom well. The disease resistance is great in my central North Carolina yard and the flowers do not ball. Despite the hoopla surrounding this roses fragrance, it isn't discernible to my nose. Otherwise, a keeper.

White Licorice is a rose I will be replacing this year. Although we live in a dry warm climate with mild winters this rose is a black spot magnet. I am not willing to put up with this much blackspot on such an ordinary rose. It does bloom well but I can get a similar white bloom without all the disease. In a well ventilated bed of five Meilland roses this is the only bad actor.
