Gardeners' Notes:

Positive mellmell On Apr 25, 2010, mellmell from Ong, NE wrote:

Beautiful, strongly scented rose. Give it lots of room to grow, even in the Midwest. It is susceptible to black spot here in Nebraska. But definitely worth the trouble. One of my favorite cut roses.

Fragrance is incredible! Keep it pruned, though, some of mine grew to about 12 feet tall!

Positive RocketCity On Apr 30, 2006, RocketCity from Owens Cross Roads, AL (Zone 7a) wrote:

I ordered melody parfumee bareroot from j&p, planted in early March, now doing great! Canes are shooting up 4ft with clusters of deep plum buds, at least 6 per cluster. Nice med. matte green foliage/clean. Can't wait to smell!

Positive cupoftea On Jul 6, 2005, cupoftea from Bellmore, NY (Zone 7b) wrote:

Lovely color change, from deep pinkish plum buds to soft lavender/pink mature blooms. Moderate fragrance has a strong citrus note. Vigorous and disease resistant so far in my garden.
