A truly wonderful rose and one of our best. It never fails to bloom and repeats with large, vibrant clusters right through the season.
It's a very well behaved bush and responds happily to pruning.
I don't know about other countries but, here, in Dunedin, NZ, it is superb. Take a look at the picture that we uploaded.

This rose is not viogourous, its foliage has an unruly habit, and the buds it produces tend to rot before bloom. This one needs to stay at the nursery.
