Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Eaglewalker On Oct 28, 2010, Eaglewalker from Memphis, TN (Zone 7b) wrote:

This is a wonderful little rose. I have had mine for two winters and two summers. It is in a bed that does not get full sun and it is doing beautifully, without any chemicals and minimal (maybe -- MAYBE -- once a month) watering -- and we had practically no rain this summer. In spite of the Memphis heat and humidity, it has never shown a sign of disease, nor dropped a single leaf from heat stress.

The growth habit is low and full (maybe 2 feet high), the leaves are small and dark green, and the flowers are like tiny pink cabbage roses. It flowers freely in spring and fall, and also sporadically in the summer (if watered!) The only drawback is the lack of scent.

Mine came from the Antique Rose Emporium.
