Gardeners' Notes:

This is a gorgeous, vibrant, pink rose. Mine seems decently resistant to black spot. I have just started taking live cuttings of my Pink Don Juan rose (March 2010) I am using both live green wood, and brown wood for my cuttings. My plant was purchased from the Naval Air Station store down in Lemoore, Ca. in 2001. It did not do so well down there due to the heat (100-115 F in the Summer), and the same is true here in Redding, Ca. (100+ F heat) It has a very soft light green stems, and is easily broken, so you may need to tie it off so the wind cannot damage it. I would place it in partial shade to keep the roses a vibrant pink color. The smell will blow you away, it's pungent, and wildly sweet. Bees love this rose! I will be adding pictures of it here once it starts blooming this Summer. I have moved over a dozen times and have kept it in a pot and taken it with me wherever I go. Any rose that can handle that kind of change is decently hardy in my humble opinion.
