    A favorite rose in my garden. I have two of them! I have commented on this rose several times in my NGA blog. Not only do the bright blooms glow in the garden, its deep green and shiny leaves remain healthy looking, and it repeats several times a year in huge trusses of blooms. The repeats often are just as full and lush as the first flush of the year.
