    This rose has been in my Ohio garden for about 16 years now. It and a yellow rose called Radiant Perfume are the only 2 roses that I have never had a problem with. It has been subjected to drought and high humidity and still grows well with not too much black spot. This is a great-looking rose for a vase. The only regret I have about it is that the color does fade after a few days, and it turns from a fiery orange to a lighter peach color. I wish it would keep its brilliant color. Also, I do wish it had a stronger scent, but even without a strong scent, it is well worth having in my garden just for the great bud shape and color. It is a rose you will really want to cut and show off in a vase. A great addition to my small area of garden space.

    I do like hot colors and I love orange. Wildfire is a stunning orange-blend hybrid tea rose that I grow in my Southside rose garden. The flowers are smaller but they pack a big punch. You can't miss this one. Just as all of my roses here in my humid Long Island, NY garden, Wildfire needs to be sprayed with a systemic fungicide to remain disease free.
