Gardeners' Notes:

Positive lastdomino On May 28, 2013, lastdomino from Longmont, CO wrote:

I am really surprised to find this rose to be a Zone 7 rose. I am not positive, but I think I purchased mine circa 2003-05. I live in Longmont, Colorado. (Zone 5 with some Zone 4 situations) This is my favorite rose of all that I have. While I do have her on the south side of my home, I do much less than I should to protect it . . . and it thrives!

This year, we had a snow storm followed by 8*F freeze on May 2. I thought if there was a chance to lose this rose, this would have been the time. The south side snow melted before any protection could be provided. However, this rose is ahead of the pack and will mostly likely bloom first this year of my south 5 roses.

I purchased 2 of these plants for myself and my mother. This was back in the 90's when they were first available and shipped from England. The were absolutely breath taking. Very delicate and elegant. When mother and I both sold our homes we chose, unfortunately, to leave them behind for fear they wouldn't make the move. We live in Florida and it was required at that time that a rep from the State come out and check them periodically. I'm now looking to purchase 2 more for us again :)

Gorgeous, gorgeous!! The first year (2009) I had it, it really didn't do much but this year it has exploded with growth and blooms. The blooms are beautiful. At one point, I had about 30 blooms on this plant. You won't be sorry you bought this plant, that's for sure.

I grew this in a pot for a few years when I lived in Hawaii. Very pretty, but if I remember correctly, it had some fierce thorns - there was no part of the stem I could safely touch with a bare hand. I'd never seen so many thorns on a rose stem!

I'm a princess Di fan and planted this rose a few years ago. I almost lost it one year, but it grew; just yesterday 10/25/06 I cut 2 blooms from it.I live in upstate NY and it gets pretty cold here in the winter.

This is a beautiful rose, but needs some heavy winter protection in zone 5.

A portion of the purchase price for this rose is contributed to Princess Diana's causes. Extremely hardy, disease resistant here in zone 4/5. Prolific blooms, wonderful scent.
