Gardeners' Notes:

Lafayette, LA (9a). The house I purchased has one growing up an eight foot fence. House was built circa 1983 and I believe this was part of the original landscaping. It must be 14 feet high and has grown over and into the neighbor's yard. I do NOTHING to this bush and it performs wonderfully, flowering throughout the year even during the high heat and humidity of the south Louisiana summer. Purchased another one from Antique Rose Emporium and its is taking off in its second year.

Such a lovely, beautiful tea. A very nice, wonderful grapefruit scent. The color is a very deep violet bicolor and the buds are stunning. I took a big risk trying to grow it in my zone. Long-term survival is up in the air, but it was recommended as being the hardiest of the teas. It is my perfect rose (I only grow hybrid teas and old garden roses) and Mrs. B.R. Cant is the perfect rose for my garden. It looks like a hybrid tea all the way into its mature bloom form, then gradually, it transforms into the charming tea shape. I absolutely love this rose and hope it survives my zone....
