Huge gorgeous blooms with good scent. Large fast growing plant with no black spot even in south Louisiana. Love this rose!

it is a magnificent gorgeous hybrid tea, although often opening in grandiflora type clusters of the most beautiful purple /pink giant blossoms. not as fragrant as reviewed in my experience, but a tall slender bush type. a good rose for background, blooms constantly and grows rapidly by own root. it is also heat tolerant, shows no sign of browning edges on petal when the weather gets over 95. a very tough nice new generation rose. a must have in all gardens for the color alone, and especially for colorado climate. magnificent.
