This rose has lived in my backyard for 30 years. I bought it for its vibrant two-tone color and fragrance. It is beautiful in arrangements and strong fragrance will fill your room. It lives in a high heat prone, dry zone (California 9b) and it tolerates the heat very well. With good care, it won't disappoint.
