This plant can become very invasive. It has for me, popping up in numerous potted plants. It has a very tough root that is hard to pull out once it gets going. However, it is a pretty plant. Just be sure you want a lot of them because they will spread all over.

I have grown this plant for a couple of years now in the hot desert heat of Tucson. I have found that it likes filtered shade. It propagates very easily from cuttings that I just stick in a bucket of water. Within a week or two, tiny white roots will appear. So far I have not had any problems with insect damage on these plants.

Lovely color and fragrance.

The 'Charles Grimaldi' has done very well for me in Tucson, Arizona. The cuttings root easily in water and the plant grows quickly. It has a lovely scent.

This is one of the most fragrant roses I have ever grown. I am often surprised by the strong aroma when I go outside . A wonderful surprise ! :-)
