I grow Easter Basket no spray and own root. She's wonderfully disease resistant. Will get some spots here or there, but they do not spread. No powdery mildew in ten-plus years. Strongly scented so the jbs love her. Mostly has continuous bloom. Normally grows up and fountains out at the top, forming a nice vase shape about 5 to 6 feet tall. A late July feeding of seaweed sent her soaring to 8ft., but she lost her nice shape.
