Survives total neglect--but with average care, this is spectacular for me. Love the bloom form, which is more like an English rose for me than a typical HT; also, fragrance is great. This rose repeats well all season for me.

This Romantica rose is very fragrant and a lovely color. It blooms at an average rate in my zone 5 garden.

One of my favorites. While it isn't exactly like my other teas, it is always in bloom with the heaviest, delightful frangrance and lush blooms. The mockingbirds liked it so much they built a nest in it.
