Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Jul 13, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

As carefree as a Knockout rose, with a nicer flower.

Very floriferous and blooms more or less continuously. The color is strong and a little harsh---sometimes I want to call it hot pink and other times it looks more coral (a color that combines both pink and orange tones), but if you like the color this is a great performer.

Tough, easy, and long-lived. This cultivar deserves to be much more widely known and grown. Much hardier than suggested above, to Z4. My nose detects no fragrance.

This is still one of the most black spot resistant of roses, even on the US east coast. Does not require fungicide sprays here to keep black spot from defoliating it.
