Nice Compact RoseReview by Shawn from CA
The Poet is a slow grower but it's worth the wait, the blooms are very fragrant. The primrose yellow fades to a cream as the bloom ages. Very disease resistant and aphids don't seem to like them, I assume the glossy leaves have something to do with it. They look good with apricot colored roses or red daylilys in a vase, alyssum or candytuft make nice accompanying plants. (Posted on 3/24/2015)
