This rose is wonderful! Very disease resistant and that says a lot for the Buffalo,NY area. Just planted it around Mothers Day and it has been in bloom since. Considering the high humidity here I have had very little black spot and would highly recommend this rose if you're looking for a wonderful, (varing shades) orange rose.

What a gorgeous & unique rose! Vibrant orange color, petite flowers, and a slight fragrance. Fragrance may become slightly more intense if you use horse manure in your mix like I do. I have noticed some color fading if the blooms are not shaded during at least part of the day. Overall it's a good specimen, and I am eagerly propagating it via cuttings. I will add pictures of my blooms when it begins to flower.
