This rose struggles mightily in my organic gardens. It is the most delectable rose plant that I have to any and all leaf chewing insects. As a result, it never seems to have any leaf surface. I actually thought it was gone for good this summer; but it came back. Poor thing probably won't make it here because I happily refuse to apply chemicals and therefore disrupt the natural balance in my gardens:-)
