I remember when I ordered this plant from the original Edmunds by accident. By the time I realized my mistake it was too late to change the order, as it had already been shipped the next day. Up until then I had avoided planting "singles" as I thought the bloom structures were too simple and not as attractive as full doubles. Boy, am I glad I clicked the wrong button when I placed the order, because this quickly became one of my all-time favorite roses. It blooms profusely in partial shade, on a large bushy plant. Rather susceptible to blackspot where I had it placed in a cooler area of the garden, which can defoliate the plant quickly. But a dose of nitrogen will restore the leaves in time, allowing the plant to continue photosynthesis, which feeds the next bloom cycle. One of my favorite roses to photograph.
