In the rose park zone 5a, Singing-in-the-rain is the top performer, more so than Julia Child and Knock-out. The color is magnificent in real-life. It's always loaded with blooms, regardless of the weather. It has a nice scent in cool weather. It's also black-spot resistant. I'm impressed with its health, color, and performance.
