I picked up this rose cheap. It had been mis-labeled at the store and then the label had been corrected to "Nicole." It was supposed to be a floribunda but mine didn't bloom much, and the blooms I had were mainly single, like a hybrid tea bears. I didn't like the appearance of the blooms much and I was very disappointed with the low number of blooms, so I culled it after one year.
