This rose is currently viewable in Disneyland in a bed in front of New Orleans Square running along the waterfront. Absolutely stunning and definitely a traffic stopper.

I have this as a tree rose in my front yard. Planted by a former owner of the home, the rose has done well after having been neglected by another owner. I prune it back rather severly in the spring, am conscious about deadheading, and am rewarded with flowers all summer. Not much fragrance (disappointing!) but the flowers are beautiful in clusters.
