Gardeners' Notes:

This rose has been very a very healthy and strong grower here in my garden. I live in East Texas zone 8B. My only complain is that I planted this rose on the front edge of my flower bed since it was supposed to be a small (24' or less) and it has grown well past that size at over 3 feet tall and 4-5 foot wide. I have tried trimming it back and that just makes it grow thicker and happier. Granted, I am not complaining about Daydream's health or vigor and it's delicate pink flowers are reliable and lovely. This is a great rose to plant. Just be aware that it may grow larger than you think !!!!
