The roses of the Poulsen company's Renaissance Collection grow well in my zone 9 garden. Bonita Renaissance is a tall bush (6-7 feet in my garden) with arching canes. The blooms are carried mainly at the top, so the rose towers over the other plants surrounding it, but does not overwhelm and obscure them. The blooms of Bonita Renaissance are a pretty shade of salmon-pink with a lighter reverse. The fragrance is quite strong, but never cloying.
