Gardeners' Notes:

This is a wonderful rose. It is pretty healthy; few to no issues with typical rose problems. It is absolutely beautiful as it goes through its stages of blooming. Highly recommended, as it's easy to take care of and a joy to observe.

A wonderful floribunda, that performs well in terms of form, strong growth(My first specimen of this rose more than doubled in size over the course of a month.), and beautiful blooms! The flowers are simply magnificent, with their stripes of red and white, with occassional tones of yellow, and pink.

Neutral OldeOake On Mar 7, 2005, OldeOake from Back of Beyond, TX (Zone 8b) wrote:

B;ooms are a mix of yellow, red, pink and white striped, more yellow, less white in cooler climates. More white, less ywllow in warmer temps.
