I just recently planted this rose in Phoenix and it gets afternoon shade and is steadily blooming in the desert sun. Very hardy.

In NE Wisconsin where I live, this rose gets through the winter quite well if buried in ground. It is one of the more hardy floribundas I have found.

Its growth habit is somewhat of a problem in that commonly the blooms appear on stems too short for cutting. When a stem is long enough it makes a pretty cut flower, but it does not last long in the vase. I often use it in a bouquet with "Double Delight," which has the same red-and-white bicolor pattern.

I find it prettier in cool weather, as the red colors is noticeably richer when it is cool. It is a prettier bush on October 1 than on August 1.

I planted this rose 2 years ago, it just keeps getting better and better. One of the most beautifull roses I have seen. I have had no problems

This is a beautiful rose, I absolutely love the color and when it is in bloom it has tons of flowers! Almost makes up for the *absolute* lack of scent. It is not very disease resistant, and mine never seems to have very many leaves, they fall off from the black spot and rust...I would think that it was because of my care, but all the other roses in my garden are full and lush...Can't beat the flowers though, very pretty, just a bit more picky and care needed than I have time to give.

This is one of the most floriforous roses I have. It blooms a lot and although there isn't much fragrance the bi-colored blooms are lovely.

I planted it (relatively) late in the season this year and so far it has done quite well.

The bush has a very nice round shape and lots of blooms.
