I love this rose! A friend had given it to me as a gift along with two other types of rose bushes. I am notorious for killing plants and the other two died. But the Snowfire grew! I had it for 15 yrs and some of the roses were as big as my hand. The color and size is what caught everyones attention. I had to move and my rose bush was left for my daughter to enjoy. I am now looking for another one. It is simpily a beautiful rose.

This rose is a source of frustration for me. I have attempted to purchase it locally on three different occassions, only to find that the bushes I purchased were incorrectly labeled. I would love to find this one because it looks so beautiful in members' photos.
