Best garden rose EVER!Review by Sandy
This is my favorite climber and garden rose ever. My bush had over 300 blooms on it one spring. I needed a lot of flowers for a Mother's Day banquet and KoD was my 'go-to' rose!
An amazing, strong rose, some of my canes were over ten feet long. We had to move it in late spring and worried about how it was going to fare after the move. I wouldn't recommend moving roses that late in the spring, but KoD bounced right back after cutting those ten foot canes back to 18 inches. It's even managed to bloom after a shock like that. I can't wait until it grows up on the fence it's planted by and I plan to order 4-5 more to completely cover the fence. I expect the fence to be completely covered in blooms in spring. That will be a sight to behold. I love love love this rose. (Posted on 8/28/2013)
Just beautiful!Review by Sharon from Nebraska
My plant is 2 years old, lives in Nebraska, is 7' tall, and is covered in gorgeous blooms. In spite of cold winters, a horrible drought last year, and a cold spring this year it is thriving. (Posted on 6/8/2013)
Season long beautyReview by Lyn
My favorite Heirloom rose,"Kiss of Desire" shines all summer on a split-rail fence facing south and west in my garden here in Lynden, WA. The most vigorous and consistently-blooming of more than 20 roses in my garden, a light pruning of cross-branches and spent blooms is the only attention I've given it for several years. In spite of our overcast and often wet summers, there have been no problems with viruses. I will feed it this year just for good measure! (Posted on 5/14/2013)
