As a comment about Rose (Rosa 'Hermosa'), Steve812 wrote:

In my own garden (procured ca. 2011 from Antique Rose Emporium) it is a chest-high plant , very nicely branched and about four or five feet across. The foliage has a subtle but distinct bluish cast and the flower's shade of pink is distinctly on the lavender side. This, IMO, augments the look of the flower. It is one of the prettiest roses I grow in terms of flower form, with its petals reflexing nicely as the best tea roses do. It is among the more generous in terms of flower production. And it has pretty good disease resistance. During wet/humid summers old leaves can get blackspot; but I have not yet seen new growth imperiled by the blight. It seems to be happy enough here in the mountains of AZ with four or five hours of midday shade.

Because of its size, I simply cannot imagine growing more than three of these next to each other any more than I can imagine calling Sissinghurst Castle and all its associated grounds my home and domain.

Good information except for the unexplained acronym. I assume the R is for Rose but no idea what the rest might represent.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

ARE is the acronym for Antique Rose Emporium, which a person with my typing skills would never spell out unless it actually helped someone else. Used to be my go-to place for new roses. Recently, not so much.
