Comments John Cabot makes just about enough clusters of rose colored flowers early in the season to obscure the foliage. Then it continues to make blossoms through the rest of the season. It is one of the more healthy roses in existance, and one of the more cold hardy, too. Those who are used to growing perfect hybrid tea roses or huge english roses may find the flowers a little simple; but it can certainly do a good job of adding a dash of color to a space.
