I just love this Rose. It is my very favorite in my garden. She requires very little care (unlike the others) and is the best repeat blooming growing in partial shade trained over a south facing chain llink fence. I have had neighbors ask for her name several times since planting. She is close to a roof down-spout in sandy soil so she gets plenty of deep watering when it rains.
Grows splendidly in Seattle, though tends to pink spots when rained on. Spotting right now after 4 months of drought, though it has had regular gound-level waterings. When the plant is covered with bouquets, as it is now, it looks like a wedding. Last year bloomed steadily late May through October.

This shrub rose has become a favorite in my family. It produces huge masses of flower heads that look a little like hydrangeas from a distance, but are delicate and beautifully colored up close. We have had absolutely no problems in terms of disease or pests. The catalogues all say that this rose is for moderate zones and warmer, but my family has five, much-beloved, six year old bushes growing (without undue winter cover!) in Southern Minnesota (zone 3-4). It also grows wonderfully in the Dallas area.
