I found a Dick Clark rose bush at Lowe's. It looked rather nice and healthy. Brought it home and repotted it. This summer was unusually hot and the bush showed some heat stress but it recuperated after I planted it in the ground where it'd get 4-5 hours of direct sun.

No diseases so far and no bug damage. It seems to be a very sturdy plant.

This is a wonderful cultivar, its scent is divine and each bloom is truly unique. Lots and lots of blooms!
