Comments "I have called this rose every name in the book" complains Claire Martin of this rose. It is tough to grow, especially in the early years. It falls prey to every fungal disease and needs good light, soil, and water. But with good cultivation the rose can be spectacular in its blending of peachy colors, and in its fragrance. Curiously, it garners a rating of 7.9 among those who have grown it, suggesting that it sometimes pleases much. Those who spray anyway or those who just want to add another English Rose to their garden might find it pleasing.
