I've had this rose for 4 years and it performs beautifully. No disease, responds well to pruning, blooms spring and fall. I was able to divide this rose by rooting a living branch by burying it for 2 years until it rooted, then I cut it away from the main bush and transplanted. Vivid crimson flowers with a golden heart have a long vase life.
