Blooms like crazy
First off, this rose smells amazing. One of the best in my garden. Second, it has more blooms than I've ever seen for a young bush. I'll get a dozen new buds at a time. It blooms like a mature plant. Lastly, it has a great color. I live in San Diego and the sun can cook white flowers and brown their edges. This one is a champ and looks great.
Even better than the Pictures!
This is the most creamy white rose I've ever seen. It reminds me of a gardenia. Beautiful blooms and easy to grow.
I bought this rose last year, I leave around Houston, and since the moment it settle up until now (end of the year) it hasn't stop flowering, more that 10 big flowers at the time...
Beautiful & Fragrant
The bare root grew pretty quickly and there were already a few rounds of blooms this year. THe size of the flower gets bigger each round and they're beautiful. It was worth buying this choice and waiting for the blooms. I sure am a fan of this Rose choice.
Hope for the Pope
I purchased this rose from J&P as a potted plant three seasons ago,it was very small and slow to get started. This bush is still not where i would expect it to be, other bushes i purchased that same year are 5-6ft with wide spread and tons of blooms, not this one, it is still small with no spread. The blooms however are wonderfully and the scent will have you sniffing all day long. Last for some time on the bush and in the vase, but its strong scent does dimenish in the vase . this season iam holding out hope for the pope to mature and catch up with its mates. I think i just got a dud bush, it happens. Perhaps i will purchase another and see what it does, until then, im keeping hope alive.
Planted last spring, great growth rate and flowers the first year... this spring it has already doubled in size, I can't wait for blooms to appear!
Most beautiful Rose and fregrance
This was one of my most favorite roses, unfortunatly it died last summer and not able to find a replacement. i have been a satified customer since 1978 enjoying the best quality in product and service since. My daughter now purchases her roses from Jackson Perkins.
I purchased the rose a couple of years back and I felt in love with its color and fragrant. Unfortunately, I lost the plant and now I am looking everywhere to replace it.
