Sorry, JD. I don't know a thing about it beyond what I entered in the database.

Rose (Rosa 'Fame!')

Deep pink is not one of the colors I chase.

I grow it here in a zone 5b garden and it does well. It is a ruffly dark rich vibrant pink and the blossoms last a long time which is a plus. Healthy. Not a top favorite of mine but I enjoy it.

I had Fame! My very very very very very VERY first rose I bought back in '07 when I didn't have a clue as to what my yard was going to be (had a pretty blank slate). LOVED it. Smelled wonderful, brilliant hot pink color. Didn't like me moving it 5 times in 1 year, promptly croaked. Poor thing. Think if I can find another one (not too far to find, pretty common) I should get another one.
Roses are one of my passions! Just opened, my Etsy shop (to fund my rose hobby)!
