Gardeners' Notes:

This rose has given me a grand total of 6 blooms in 3 years. I feel that it should do much better. It's quite pretty when it does bloom, though.

I purchased this rose without information regarding zone hardiness but it has managed to survive in Denver for six years, resisted white fly infestation and drought. It resists powdery mildew, black spot and rust. Beautiful fragrant blooms in English style. I recently moved it to a different bed since the adjacent hybrid tea had grown to 4.5'. It survived the transplant and is blooming well.
I would recommend this rose with the qualification that you use winter mulching if you are zone 5 or colder.
