I have to take back what I said 2 years ago - this has hardly grown at all in 2 years and despite my best efforts has major black spot. I'm going to replace them.

Not much fragrance but spectacularly beautiful flowers. Lots of blooms in a fairly short time. I've only had it a year but I have hopes it will be a real show-stopper when it gets larger. I also have seen a tendancy to black spot.

Beautiful rose, with pale pink blooms edged in bright pink. Dark bronze foliage contrasts well, and it seems to be quite vigorous. Sadly it seems quite prone to black-spot.
