I've had this rose for two seasons. It is a very hearty and vigorous grower. When it is in bud, it's beautiful but the flowers never fully open for me. They get kind of wilty looking and just kind of peter out.

I bought this rose from a local nursery last year. It has grown quickly and has had very little problems with pests and disease. Its rebloom so far has not been good but other than that I have no complaints.
