Planted this rose bush 4 years ago.,when I picked it up from the garden center it looked yellowish and weak so I wasn't sure what to expect. It took a while for the yellow leaves to clear up and now 4 years later every year from June till frost I get a continuous supply of beautiful red roses. It has survived attacks by the Japanese beetle but it didn't make any difference because the folliage and blooms where so abundant. Minimal care I cut it back in early spring and add some slow release fertilizer. I have a few more Oso easy varieties in my garden but double red is my favourite.

No need to deadhead to keep those beautiful blooms coming, too!

I have had this rose for around three years and this year it has been just amazing, Beautiful blooms all over it, I have had issues with leaf spot on several different Proven Winners roses in the past but not this one. I just wish more retailers carried it. I would recommend it to everyone, This one is truly a winner,Paul Rich, Tennessee, United States, 1 year ago
This is the second year I've had this plant in my garden. I usually stay away from roses because of all the disease and insect problems but this one is a winner. The plant is not about 3 feet by 3 feet with 6-10 stems with buds and blooms. It first bloomed this year in June and now it's fully loaded for a second season of flowers. Flowers are very lightly scented and stems just barely long enough to use as cuts in a small vase. Foliage is spotless with no signs of diseases. Japanese beetles seem to have ignored it, but it's been a light year for this beetle so time will tell. The plant has only been fed twice with a granular organic so considering our very short season, very cold winters and lots of liquid sunshine....pretty impressed.Andrew Messinger, New York, United States, 3 years ago
