So specialReview by Dorothy
I received him in May, healthy. It us now June 21st and I have 2 beautiful roses and a few more rosebuds. When the sun shines on him just right, he looks aflame or glowing. Wish I could attach my picture. (Posted on 6/20/2016)
A Beauty That Thrives on Little CareReview by Gail
I've grown this rose for over 15 years. I am now physically unable to dig it up and move it to a spot better suited to roses so it remains sandwiched in between my asphalt driveway and my house foundation. I can't even apply fertilizer to it. Still, it blooms every year with the most fascinating color change of petals. Newly opened flowers are yellow with a blush of pink but the older they get, the redder the petals become. You are gifted with the beauty of red, red on yellow, orangey-yellow, and yellow with pink blushing flowers simultaneously on the same bush. The sight just lifts my spirits! A bonus is that, in the fall, the rose hips turn a lovely orange color. I live in the south Puget Sound area of Washington State and we are plagued by blackspot. This is the one downfall of my bush; it is quite susceptible to blackspot. Since the canes grow so tall, however, I can remove the lower leaves to stop the rain from bouncing off the ground and back onto the leaves, thereby spreading the blackspot throughout the plant. I highly recommend this rose to anyone! (Posted on 1/16/2016)

Wonderful - Our favorite!Review by SpringfieldGal
On a trellis behind other roses of similar shades, this is georgeous - ties the whole rose garden together. It's my husband's joy to view it in the morning when the sun comes through the petals. It gets rave reviews from company, too. (Posted on 6/5/2014)

Favorite of all time!Review by Vee
This is the rose I started with when I started my garden. It is still my best performer and the most beautiful show-off in bloom! Heirloom sent me healthy stock and I could not be happier with this bush. (Posted on 4/7/2014)
Robust growerReview by SJ
Grows like a weed! Very proliferative. Nearly always blooming - colorful blooms. Nasty thorns, though - big and sharp. (Posted on 12/22/2013)
