Dove posted a pic of CM on Facebook and it sure is pretty!
Any reviews appreciated.

Never looks that redorange here, more of a pink. That's why I've neverbought even though it's a top seller @ one of my lgs.

I just ordered CM from RU among other DA roses. I'm in zone 7 though. So we'll see how it grows in my zone.

I am growing CM here. Most maps say I am zone 6, but I plan for zone 5. This is its first full year. The color is hard to describe, but nice. Mine starts out a bit darker than the photo, but less orange. It ages to a lighter color -a salmon pink. It is its first full year in my garden.

RU is listing Wildeve on sale. I have been growing it for several years and love it. It is sending up new canes that reach 7', so disregard the Austin 3.5' description. The flowers are pale pink with a touch of yellow on the base. It has been completely cane hardy every winter for me. I am surprised that more people don't grow this one.

I've been looking at Wild Eve for a long time.
Thanks for the heads up!
