This is an exceptional antique rose. It is drought tolerant, and very healthy. It is a minimum care rose bush, that provides beautiful flowers for landscape or cut flowers to bring inside and enjoy. It loves hot weather and doesn't suffer from the cold at all in the Houston area. It is also a Texas A&M Earthkind rose - check out their website.
