Gardeners' Notes:

We have had "Gizmo" for 2 years in a pot on our deck, which
faces south-east and gets sun for at least 5 hours a day during the summer. This past winter was wet and long, with snow until May. We did have black spot on most of our roses this summer. I didn't say spring 'cause we really didn't have one. We love this little rose.

I've been growing Rosa 'Gizmo' for 11 years, low temperature -11oF, and have found it erratic outside, with good over-wintering in some spots but not others, the spots varying from year to year. It is much better with some protection, reaching 1m (3') and flowering profusely. It has been untouched by bugs or disease and is an absolute standout. It is easily propagated by hardwood cuttings, which I do in a greenhouse in winter.

I adore this plant, first, because it was a gift from a lovely DGer and secondly, because it is a flowering fool. It is categorized as a mini. Mine is potted and in full sun. This fall I'm gonna propagate so I can plant inground as well.
