This rose goes by the name Tequila Supreme in my garden. The colors are excellent, but the blooms don't last as long as I would like. The loose petals seem to tatter in the wind here. It could be that it takes more than a couple of years to really perform, though. I planted this in 2011 when it was first introduced in the U.S. It is a constant bloomer.
Tequila Supreme has never shown any blackspot, or any other disease, in my no-spray zone 6/7 Kansas garden. It has kept its leaves through this exceptionally cold winter. I did not mulch it the last two winters, and it had very little dieback.
A whole hedge of this rose would be an incredible sight, because as the blossoms fade, the colors change, and the effect is lovely.
