This may be the best rose ever! This lovely pale pink rose is the most disease resistant I have ever encountered with the many I have grown over the years. It has dense dark green foliage and an abundance of blooms on a vigorous, compact shrub. I have two next to my front porch and they bloom year round EVEN IN WINTER here in East Texas. They require no special care and tolerate heat and humidity with ease as well as freezing temps. Amazing, a very rewarding rose for a beginning rose gardener.

Love this rose.....blooms in flushes almost all year long. Very disease resistant; I have never sprayed this rose at all and it remains healthy in a spot that has shade probably a little more than half the time.

Very pretty, fragrant flowers, too!

A wonderful new addition for landscaping. A sweet fragrance fills the air around this lovely light pink floribunda. It grows wider then tall, so leave it plenty of elbow room. Throws up large multibranched candelabras full of blooms and has a good repeat. Disease resistance has been good for me, with only slight powdery mildew in spring.

Incredibly beautiful plant. If I could have only one pink rose, this would be it.

Blooms heavily when it does bloom. Smaller pink flowers with lovely fragrance.
