Gardeners' Notes:


On Nov 29, 2013, MurrayTX from El Paso, TX (Zone 8a) wrote:

I planted 2 of these from a grocery store, meaning they were already root-bound and not from this region. Although I have mildly alkaline sandy soil, the planting location is in a lawn (but wood mulched and soaker hosed around the roses), our local water is hard and salty, and these roses were in full 100+ degree summer sun, both survived. Admittedly their first 4 months were not good, with most of their leaves looking scorched. Even then, their blooms showed no damage. Both are now very happy and vibrant green in our November coolness. I suspect that both will continue to do well despite our summers.

This beautiful rose does very well in Indiana, z.5. It is not afraid of 0F. The most important it is tolerant to black spot. The lower leaves get some black spots, but because bush is huge, disease does not progress further up. I have had this rose for three years and I am very happy about this cultivar.

I love everything about this gorgeous rose, except that it is really prone to rust. I grew it in two gardens here in Maine and each one was affected by this rust magnet. It took all season to get rid of it.
