    This is a Plant Select rose for the Rocky Mountain region. I purchased this rose in Spring 2012. It never thrived. It just sat there all summer, never put out new growth, got spindly, and then I believe the winter of 2012/2013 finally killed it. I purchased a new rose in the beginning of August 2013. I have it in a different part of my yard. Let's hope that it does better this time than the last time. I will update in 2014 how it fares over the winter.
