McGredy has bred a significant number of 'hand painted' roses, and all have been interesting. This rose, however, is truly one-of-a-kind.

Grow this rose only if you have good conditions, for it will not tolerate marginal ones. Or just. I've had this one for four years and during two seasons it did not produce a single blossom. As a climber it has not yet reached three feet.

It has not suffered from disease, it has simply failed to grow. ARS members rate it 7.6 which suggests that under high culture it might be quite pleasing.
