Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral tgwWhale On Dec 13, 2010, tgwWhale from Casco, WI wrote:

This rose is stunningly beautiful in both appearance and fragrance. I would give it a very strong positive rating except that it tends to die over a Zone 5 Wisconsin winter, even if it is buried in ground.

I tried three times to grow this rose, but none of the bushes lasted more than two or three years. It seems to need a warmer winter than I can give it, so I rate it neutral.
