Nostalgie is difficult to find. I had to order mine from a mail-order nursery, but now I am not sure where I bought it -- probably Palatine Roses years ago. Mine grows in my Southside Rose garden. The blooms are stunning. For me the plant stays rather short. It does need spraying with a systemic fungicide here in my humid Long Island, NY garden.
