Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Mar 22, 2015, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Flowers are small (1"), single, strong pink/magenta/fuchsia, produced in large clusters.

There are several shrubs in the rose garden in Roger Williams Park, Providence, RI that are about 3' tall and wide, vigorous and healthy. They get some summer defoliation due to black spot but still get several flushes of bloom over the season. We do not spray.

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 !!!!
