Last year, a lot of my pure yellowish roses, Julia Child included, died right down to the ground & half outright died. This striped variety, however, did not. It did have some die-back, like others, but it survived & continues to flourish. The scent is not overly powerfully, but a great characteristic to its physical beauty.

I grow this rose in Spokane Valley, WA and it's one of the most spectacular roses I've ever had or seen-and we currently have over 60 roses in our yard! The colors vary daily and each rose is different too. We had a milder winter (2011-2012) and this year the rose is over 5' tall even in our zone (which is 5B or 6A, depending on where you look)and covered with big, beautiful blossoms.
