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!

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.
