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.

Negative Ordelia On Jul 31, 2006, Ordelia from Banner Elk, NC (Zone 6a) wrote:

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.
