I LOVE this rose .
Mine is 1.2m and growing. I am a hacker at pruning so this growth is phenomenal.

The fragrance is TO DIE for.

If you don't have one then put it on the list.

Super sweet fragrance
Hardy
Prolific
All your friends will want some roses from it!!!!!!
Never believe anyone who says your proposed garden is too big!!!

Remember, treat others how you would like to be treated.

SOLD!

8) 8) 8) Too easy....I'm so convinced. Already on my "to get" list haha! :D :D :D

TheE this rose of yours is beautifully awsomely gorgeous. You've been raving about it for a while now, I should've gotten it bare-rooted this winter... :cry: :cry:

Daffy, I could almost imagine it's fragrance from the pic you had posted on the Roses thread.... :wink:
