America is a beautiful and unusual off-pink colored rose with a typical high-centered hybrid tea form of flower. Here in my garden it does need strictly scheduled spraying for blackspot since I want it to be blackspot-free. Not a rose that can miss a spraying and stay blackspot-free.

It is supposed to be a climber but mine simply refuses to climb and has remained a bare knees shrub for years. As I love the flower, I just planted some lower growing floribundas in front of it and let it do as it wants.
