  • Posted by Newyorkrita (North Shore, Long Island, NY ) on Feb 10, 2014 2:31 PM concerning plant:
    I like Tamora because she stays a smaller shrub and does not try to grow overly large. Lovely, soft-looking, full blooms. One of my few Austin roses. Just as all of my roses here in my humid Long Island, NY garden, Tamora needs to be sprayed with a systemic fungicide to remain disease free.
