This rose was bred by William Radler, who also developed the Knock Out series, but I like this so much better because it actually has a very nice fragrance and changing color. While it is supposed to be disease resistant, I have seen a few leaves with black spot on them, but nothing too serious. It blooms from spring to fall and has been in my zone 6b garden for 3 years now. It gets a pink tinge to it when the weather is cooler, and it's nice to see the different shades of pink in the white blooms throughout the season.
