Wonderfully UniqueReview by Pyrenees9
I have greatly enjoyed this rose from the day it first bloomed here. It's smokey color is beautiful and blends well with every other color in my garden. While very thorny, it is a fine cut rose with a lovely fragrance. (Posted on 2/12/2017)
FabulousReview by Pyrenees9
I got Hot Cocoa when it first came out and have loved it ever since. The color is striking and the aroma is wonderful. I use it as a focal point in my rose garden and grow it in large pots.

I love this rose too... the color is uniqueReview by Barbara
I would not be without this rose, even though with my zealous pruning, no spray policy, a terrible tussock moth attack, and time, she is less and less vigorous. Originally though (Northern California, Zone 9b) she was extremely vigorous, despite a tussock moth attack and our drought. I work on the soil rather than on spraying. Hot Cocoa is such a unique colored rose. She is a wonderful addition to my bouquets.

My first rose ever! The best rose ever! I'm in love with this beautiful rose and the amount of growth is amazing. I simply cannot wait until this rose matures and develops bigger blossoms To enjoy more of the delightful fragrance. Thanks for sending me such a magnificent Rose. (Posted on 3/8/2016)

Absolutely love this rose! It's a show stopper!Review by Jennifer
This is one of my favorite roses. The petals are almost velvety to the touch and the color is so rich and doesn't fade. The leaves have a beautiful color and texture also. It doesn't seem to be as prone to rust or other disease, and is one of the best performers in my rose garden of 54 roses. I love it. It is also one of my favorites to photograph.

the amazing roseReview by Kathryn
I got this rose and put it in a partly shady spot last year and it's doing fine. it smell's amazing, plus it helped to see it in the garden they had so you don't have to rely on the picture! (Posted on 2/25/2014)
