This rose has not performed well, suffering from powdery mildew, rust, black spot, and generally not thriving. It responded to Erase but the blossoms do not last long and are not prolific.

This Buck rose is a healthy, lovely rose with a wonderful fragrance.

"Prairie Sunrise" is a very hardy Buck rose, and a really beautiful apricot color. Nicely fragrant, and wonderfully healthy for me, here in zone 6. I do NOT spray, so my roses are on their own in this respect! If you are an apricot fan, as I am, this is a MUST HAVE rose, in my opinion.
