Grows very vigorously, one of the first roses to bloom and the last to stop blooming. It was rarely without a bloom all summer even in over 100 degree heat. It did not get much blackspot, but it did get a bad case of powdery mildew early in April, but it shrugged it off and bloomed prolifically afterwards. Light scent.
