This rose is supposed to be a sport of New Zealand, a rose that I can grow very successfully. As I have spent years trying to get white hybrid teas to grow in my garden, I tried three times with this one. After all, if New Zealand grows, this one should, too. Right?

Wrong. This rose seems less winter-hardy than its parent, does not grow as well, and is not nearly as floriferous. The buds tend to "ball up" and many do not open. The flower form is commonly less than perfect, also.

It does have a decent fragrance, but over all, it gets thumbs down.

I have had this rose for a year and the buds are huge, but never burst into flower.

This rose has only been in my garden for two years. It seems to be doing ok, but the blooms are smaller than I expected and not very prolific. Additionally, it seems to "bruise" very easily with a brown/tan scarring on the petals that's not terribly attractive. But it's only my second year with this rose, so it may have some surprises for me. It survived the winter with little or no special care and pretty much takes care of itself with a little rose fertilizer now and then.

This rose has a great fragrance, but it's tender in the winter so it needs lots of protection. It has pretty blooms, but it doens't bloom too much in my zone 5.
