Comments Even its breeder calls it "not the most vigorous of rose" but one might grow it because its "fragrance is to die for." Pickering Nurseries calls it one of the more disease resistant of hardy hybrid tea roses. Since disease can really be costly to a rose, slow growth and really good disease resistance can frequently be superior to the opposite condition, if one is patient.
