Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Alaria On Oct 23, 2009, Alaria from Rockport, MA wrote:

A beautiful rose in a remarkable shade of mauve. Rebloomed many times in a season and well into the fall. A great color mixed into a bouquet. Hardy here by the ocean. However, we almost took it out because the blossoms balled in the rain. After its third year, it stopped balling, looked great, and bloomed profusely. It took time to get established but was unstoppable once it did. Definitely recommend it.

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the famous Scottish architect and designer of the Art Nouveau period.

Negative gxiong On Jun 17, 2008, gxiong from Knoxville, TN (Zone 6b) wrote:

This rose struggles to survive in my garden. The rose is smaller than I had anticipated (about 2" bloom size). The leaves are in proportion to the rose, small and dainty. I have not had any disease problems, but this rose just seem to not fill out. One redeeming aspect to this rose is that it blooms non-stop! I hope with time, it will show itself to be a keeper.
