Thriller appears to be one of those florists roses that have to be grown in a greenhouse in Ecuador to produce the best results. It produces only occasional blooms, which usually exhibit disease and pest damage. The rose bush is so susceptible to black spot that it rarely has any good leaves at all -- just bad ones or no leaves.
