From a cutting, Of my friends 18 year old plant, came my 12 year old bush. The most disease resistant rose I grow, producing a fair amount of blossoms and is seriously winter hardy for me. We live in challenging climate conditions, however this one can withstand it all. We have very very very hot dry conditions in Denver for most of July and parts of June and August , it takes it well. A must for all Rosarians.

I like this rose..it is VERY pink, has a good fragrance and the blooms are pretty large. Doesn't seem to mind the heat too much. I might be adding a couple more of these to my collection.

The original name for this hot pink diva was 'Maria Callas.' Although it was bred by Meilland in France it was named for the famous American opera singer. When it got to these shores somebody decided to rename it! Don't I wish it still had its original name! We grew it for several happy years before it finally died of the Maine winter.

I planted this rose in March 06, I really anticipated it's first bloom. It finally budded but took two weeks to open the slightest to cut! Although beautiful in size,shape,hot pink,sweet fragrance, it has since been stingy with blooms?Now in Alabama's hot/humid climate, it is still slow and leggy.I want to keep her but maybe she can't take the heat!
