Very fragrant, beautiful *BIG* blooms. I haven't had many problems with disease, although the aphids love it ; ) I even pruned it at the wrong time and some of the canes got frost burned, but it came back lush and full in the spring, giving me my first bloom of the season on any of my roses. Has a very classic rose scent. Even better, I got it for free as a door prize at a local rose farm : ) Beautiful flowers and scent, I would definitely recommend it.
