    I simply cannot stop taking photos of this rose. Part of the reason is that there are few moments during the growing season when it is not in bloom. Another is that I love the gently scrolling petals and the way they shine against the glossy green foliage. The plant itself grows with a vigor no HT rose I have planted here in the mountains of AZ can match. It actually needs a tiny bit of light shade to keep its roots from drying out too quickly. Old leaves can sometimes show some blackspot, otherwise, no observed disease problems. Not sure it would make a good cutting rose, but it surely does add nearly continual interest to the warm season garden.
