  • Posted by csandt (Lancaster County, Pennsylvania - Zone 6b) on Oct 31, 2016 11:00 AM concerning plant:
    I planted 'Wedding Bells' grafted to Multiflora rose stock from Palatine Roses in early spring, 2016. It produced beautiful blooms in June, but as the summer heat increased, bloom quality declined (e.g., ugly brown edges on the petals). As cooler fall weather settled in, the blooms became beautiful once again. I was never able to detect any fragrance; nor could any visitors to my garden. Based on one season in my zone 6b Pennsylvania garden, it seems that 'Wedding Bells' is stressed by hot summer temperatures and very happy in cooler weather .
