I love this rose but it don't like me Crying I purchased one two years ago and it never sprouted it died so I ordered another and the place sent me an extra to replace the dead one last year . I thought hell out of the two I should get one Crossing Fingers! ......but....they both died Confused . I don't think Caribia likes me Glare ......is there a trick to growing this rose?.. I have only run into this with this variety ... Sighing! I am kind of afraid to order another Blinking

Donna, I must reply to this posting, because in 2017 I won first place in the Rose Photo contest on this forum, with my photo of "Caribia" or it's original name, named after "her" breeder, "Harry Wheatcroft!" I love this rose, have four potted up on the back deck right now, and two down in my unheated greenhouse. If I lose them all, I will just reorder next year, because to be able to have such a beautiful rose each year, is just a dream come true! While "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", I present seriously beholding over this rose! LOL. I don't know if you can click on my 2017 award button and it will come up or not, but could always check Garden.Org Photo Contest Winners, 2017. Once you find my photo, you have to decide whether it is worth the fuss to keep it alive, assuming it arrived in a healthy condition? It is a magnet for every rose disease known, so, if you want to keep it, you have to spray and hand pick rose slugs. But you know up here in Nova Scotia, this rose comes into full bloom, way before any foes get to defoliate her! And on the elevated back deck, even better! C'mon, you can do it! I want to see a picture of your "Caribia" this year??? Please???Cheers!

I have found it again and I could not resist buying it, I am on pins and needles waiting for it to arrive. So I guess i am going to give it another go. I love the colors of this one so much and would love it in my garden. Next spring I will also be getting purple tiger, had one loved it but it had a mishap with a bad gardener with weed killer here at the park...I have lost several beauties in the mishap. I have since threatened this mans manhood if I even see him with the sprayer near my roses or even any of my plants....I will post my caribia's progress when it arrives!

The "Tropical Lightning" I purchased is doing well lots of new growth and the hint of buds!



I also just got in a rose named "Music Box" hope to see new growth on it soon.

Ordered a "Abracadabra"..rose another striped rose, but I also hear it is unpredictable, that just adds to the attraction to me. So far it has lots of new sprouts! ... so am thinking it will be just fine.
