This is a hardy dwarf rose!!! Blooms and blooms for 24 years of no spraying, little fertilizing (mabye one a year). Sprinklers keep aphids down. Have NEVER used pestcide! Soil is often very moist but does not seem to effect plant or bloom production. Makes a fabulous boarder. lasts "forever". Blooms in bunches of bright pink for dramatic effect. Deadhead to increase blooms.
