Gardeners' Notes:

I've had this wonderful rose in my garden for three summers. It bloooms from late spring until frost and has never had blackspot or any other problems.

It is not a white rose, as stated in the information, but a clear pink single.

Positive hortensia On Jun 28, 2006, hortensia from Langley, BC, BC (Zone 8b) wrote:

Bred by Kleine Lettunich from Francis E Lester, and named for her daughter -- Lyda Rose. Thrives in considerable shade, a very healthy. floriferous and highly fragrant rose. The sprays of bloom are large and lovely, but the individual flowers are exquisite in their own right as well.

Positive Pattyperennial On Jan 24, 2004, Pattyperennial from Yakima, WA wrote:

This single rose is self-cleaning and resembles apple blossoms. The roses grow in large clusters and one shrub will fill 25 vases! Lyda blooms all summer if deadheaded and ARS rates this rose 8.9! I grow Lyda as a superb 4' hedge.
