Gardeners' Notes:

I have had this rose for many years and it is one of my very favorites. It blooms all the time and the flowers are a gorgeous shade of pink and have beautiful form. This bush has not given me any trouble and I really don't spend much time caring for it and I do not spray or use any chemicals at all. Highly recommend.

I tried a Bill Warriner once. If I remember correctly, it bit the dust its first winter. Note that I am talking about a NE Wisconsin winter, with lows down to 20 or 25 below. I box the roses up and bury them in ground. The more hardy hybrid teas and floribundas make it; Bill Warriner didn't.

It might be a fine rose for more decent climates, but can't hack it up here on the frozen tundra (20 miles east of Green Bay).
