What has your experience with Maman Cochet rose been? It's size, disease resistance, how long blooms last, how often it blooms etc. any photos you have to post would also be appreciated. I live in North Carolina and would like to place it where it would get about 5 hours of strong sun and dappled the rest of the time. I have choices on its specific placement so would be interested in exactly how large yours got. If need be I do have placement with more sun available but would prefer to place it in my first choice. Thanks all!!

This is a fully-mature bush of 'Maman Cochet', in the Sacramento City Cemetery. It was probably planted in the mid-1990's.
For reference, I'd say that the brick surround to the plot where it is growing is perhaps 3-ft. tall.

I don't know about your conditions, but in both Northern and Southern California, 'Maman Cochet' and her color sports are among the most disease-resistant roses I know.

Also among the loveliest.

@Jerijen thank you so much for the reference pictures! They really help visualize. Thats about what I was expecting. I am hopeful its disease resistance does indeed come close in my climate. Anyone with high humidity experience?

Cherie, I imagine that a Maman Cochet planted in your zone of 7a will experience a fair amount of winter die-back from season to season, and might not ever reach the size of the very mature specimen in Jeri's photograph, which is located in the much warmer climate of northern California. Maman Cochet's cold hardiness rating on HelpMeFind is Zone 6b, just within the tolerance of your region. (BTW, I'm from Winston-Salem.)

@mike. Thank you! My zone is actually 7b not much but slightly better. Lol. I currently have 67 roses, from moss to Polyanthas and in between, and have experienced no dieback in the winters. Is Maman considered more tender in some way? Would I have to winterize her more than my others?

Interesting... your Identifying information in the upper right corner of your posts indicates that you are in Zone 7a; you may want to update it. Zone 7b will be kinder, and if you're "micro-climate" (meaning the conditions of your own land and garden) are kind to your roses, all the better!

@Mike that is funny. I see that. Still new to the forum. It doesn't allow you to change it as it's automatic I guess. Garden . Org must generate it. But if you search my zone it comes up as 7b......are zones changed periodically based on weather stats? Who knew?!

You can change your zone manually by going to your profile settings, and using the scroll setting for hardiness zones.
