If you just get past the nematode-infested soil and keep your roses in pots, and if you take good care against black spot (the humidity here is favoring this disease), you can successfully grow this beautiful rose. I have to mention: this two caveats are valid for all the roses I have and I've tried to grow while in Miami.
Mirandi has beautiful, big double red-velvety flowers, also fragrant (here the scent is better in the evening).
My problems with this particular rose, and the reason for making a neutral: sometimes it tended to get a bit leggy, and I've experienced some blind shots, but maybe it's been my lack of knowledge for growing roses.

Last summer (2006) was the first year for this rose in my garden. Gorgeous, deep scarlet, velvety blooms, intense fragrance, nice growth from bare root, made it through the winter well with mounding over crown and an overturned bucket for protection. Japanese beetles didn't bother it as much as some others.
