First season with this rose (J & P 'Signature') & can find very little info. Have plenty of blooms but they are not yet open. It seem like the buds have been the same size now for several days. Am I just being impatient? I am new to roses. There is no browning of the buds although the "edges" appear dark. Any help appreciated please!

Signature is in it's second season here is zone 6(PA). It is an awesome rose. The combination white innerside and pink outer edges make this rose glow. Beautiful!!! One of my favorites. Signature puts out roses that are approx.5'' in diameter, last in a vast more that a week. Never ever fades in color no matter how hot it gets, it gives flushes constantly. Never have had a problem with B.S. or mildew with this one.

Came through the winter wonderfully, with just a little mulch (not much protection). Only needed slight prunning. This rose already has tons of buds on it. I give it espom salt, bannans, fertilizer. What a wonderful addition to any garden!
