This ever blooming huge bush was a pleasant surprise for me. I bought it not knowing anything about it. Planted on the end of a bed so I could get rid of it if I didn't like it. It's not going anywhere. I can count on this beauty for roses in a vase all season and still have enough blooms on the bush to look great in the garden.
