I just planted a bare root specimen this summer of 2010. This was being sold at a local large hardware store. I brought it because of the picture on the bag! There is never any specific information on the package for the individual rose inside. It is always a surprise when I buy these. It has grown well to about 4' so far. It has been blooming all summer and even into October. It is heavily petaled and it is a beautiful shade of mauve.

My only concern is that it is not zone for my area. I was not aware that this rose does best in zone 6 and up. I am in Chicago, Illinois (Zone 5). So I will have to hope and pray that it will come back next spring.
