Comments Rosarians at Hortico declare of it "One of our best pinks: disease resistant, and cold hardy." It makes a lot of other "Recommended" lists in areas where disease is a problem. It grows to perfection at the Van der Goot Garden in Somerset, NJ where it nearly covers itself with shapely pink blooms. For all its many strong merits, it is not a rose for the front of the border: it is a bit too leggy.
