  • Posted by zuzu (Northern California - Zone 9a) on Dec 8, 2011 8:10 PM concerning plant:
    Sweet Chariot is the ideal rose for a hanging basket. The canes naturally want to trail downward rather than standing straight up. It produces beautiful clusters of perfectly shaped blooms and stays in bloom throughout the season.
