My first year with this one. Growing it in half whisky barrels and it is still doing fine so far. Relatively healthy rose. Starts out Apricot with yellow on bottom than cools to a more peachy-cream color. Nice soft scent that I can't describe. Will see if it winters well and comes back here in Columbus, Ohio.

I love the apricot color, it seems to glow amongst the other roses. The spicy scent is refreshing as well, one of my favorites

Of my about 10 varieties of Floribundas, this is probably the hardiest. I have 3 of them, and they are all huge (about 4' tall, 3' wide) and healthy. They bloom from May until frost with repeated deadheading. They get alot less black spot than most of my other roses. The flowers are really big and gorgeous. They are are a pinky peach when they first open, fading to a light creamy peach. If they have any problems, I'd say that because they get so tall, the stems will flop over if you don't do drastic deadheading. If I didn't, they'd be over 5' tall and flop over. When the blooms are spent, I whack the stems down more than I do on other roses, and they come back out just fine, with new blooms in about 3 weeks.
