I planted 'Gourmet Popcorn' in the ground four years ago. I live in the mountains of northern California and have four distinct seasons, unlike southern California where, as a friend says, they have thirteen months of summer.

The database gives the size of the plant as "short 1 - 2 feet'. My plant is closer to 3.5 feet tall and just as wide. It is one of the larger shrub roses in that bed.

So, if conditions are right, plan to give the rose more space than indicated in the database when siting the rose.

Smiles,
Lyn

A friend grows Gourmet Popcorn in her Long Island, NY garden, not far from where I live. It has made a large bush that is profusely covered in small white blooms. I spray my roses with a systemic fungicide and so does she, so I don't know how disease resistant it would be without spraying.
