I love this rose - it is hardy enough to withstand both new england and eastern washington winters (I have grown it in both locals). The color is a simple vibrant pink (think barbie doll pink) with a strong fragrence. Where this plant shines is in it's vigor. From Late june through september it is covered in masses of roses. beautiful.

A wonderful rose. Survives our zone 5 winters without protection. Needs little spring pruning unless it gets zapped by a late cold snap. Then it regrows quickly after deadwood is removed.It's pretty pink blooms are abundant for most of the season. Only a little blackspot in our hot, humid Indiana summers.
