love this rose - untroubled by japanese beetles when all my others are destroyed. Healthy dark green foliage without care, delicate fragrance, reasonably long lasting when cut.

Though my thorniest rose, it is also the showiest. Producing masses of baby pink blooms almost non stop. It has grown to over 14 feet high and I pull down the longer branches and stake the tip to get all over blooms. I have done lots of beginner oops things that should have killed it, but it just keeps going. I have had NO blackspot or any other rose problems with it, even in my super humid/hot zone.
