Positive honeyrose2 On Oct 11, 2009, honeyrose2 from San Francisco, CA wrote:

This plant has done quite well in the Rose Garden in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The area in sprayed with horticultural oil once a year. The beds are surrounded by grass and the garden was built on an old road bed so it gets quite muddy in winter. The plant has stayed quite disease free.
