These roses are everything I want and more! I’ve had 3 of them for a number of years. Two of them were new in 3 gal pots and a third was on markdown because it was struggling some. I don’t like other shrub roses cause they have little fragrance and few petals. Other reviews for this rose have complained that the flowers flop and that’s because of that high petal count. Knock Out roses have 5 petals or just a few more if they’re doubles so they don’t flop. Cut back in the spring to fewer healthy stems and maybe they won’t flop so much either. Love that fragrance!

This easy-care rose defies conventional expectations of what a rose needs to thrive in your landscape. To keep it looking great, simply prune back by at least one third its total height each early spring, just as the new buds begin to emerge on the stems. Make your cut just above a thick, healthy bud, as these produce the most vigorous growth. It can also be fertilized at this time with a granular rose fertilizer.
The plant may be deadheaded if desired, but this is not required for continuous bloom.At Last® Rosa x 'HORCOGJIL' USPP 27,541, Can 5,631

I love proven winners, but this rose is a major fail. I have 5, and all of them are covered in blackspot. Not matter what I spray or how much I prune and toss all the effected leaves into the trash, it always comes back. The branches are so weak too, this is their second season. I have several other roses in my garden that are beautiful dark green and healthy. I will see how they do in the spring, but I’m probably tossing and replacing with a similar color of rose from David Austin. All my David’s are dark dark green, strong branches, and blooming like crazy. All the blooms on the at last fall off as soon as they bloom. I also noticed at last were not touched at our Home Depot, and they were the only roses covered in black spot. I would re-work this one proven winners, I get it works in some areas, but from the looks of the reviews it’s not an easy rose to grow in humid climates.Lindsay, North Carolina, United States, 27 weeks ago
I'm done. 4 summers in and these are coming out. I had planned on planting these right across my front porch since the blooms are so beautiful and fragrant. I've babied them through the winter with protective covers, pruned according to what I've researched online etc. What I'm getting is a very leggy plant, stem "burning", and about 50% of leaves not looking healthy. I have them in an optimal location with "sun". Proven Winners is one of my go-to brands, but this rose did not do well for me. I've transitioned to the Vanilla Strawberry Hydrangea that is so far thriving. I'll plant a row this year. Much lower maintenance compared to roses.....Jason, Canada, 36 weeks ago
Planted two of the gallon size in the fall, am in zone 6b in Pennsylvania, we had a very mild winter this season almost no snow, its 4/16/23 all other perennial have broken the ground and are up. These are no shows. So disappointed, was looking forward to having them in my garden this season. Not sure i want to bother reordering these.Toni Rance, Pennsylvania, United States, 44 weeks ago
these just don't thrive in my zone 6Diana, Pennsylvania, United States, 45 weeks ago
I go out of my way to always buy Proven Winners shrubs and annuals. I love Proven winners. As a gardener of over forty years experience, I have to say this is the saddest excuse for a rose I've ever purchased. I've grown dozens of roses. Heirlooms, climbers, hybrid teas, English roses, Knock-outs, etc. I bought this variety a couple years ago from a local nursery when I saw the hype and pictures of the gorgeous peach roses. I'm in zone 5b. I planted this rose in perfect soil and cared for it properly. 1. As many other reviewers have said, the branches are weak and spindly and flop to the ground. 2. There are very few roses. 3. They are not very fragrant. 4. When they do bloom, the petals fall off immediately. 5. It is NOT disease resistant. 6. The plant has ZERO VIGOR! I can not believe PW released this LOSER of a rose to the public. I've never given up on a rose in all these years, but this one is going to be ripped out and put in the compost bin. DEEPLY DISAPPOINTING!MMERCEDES, 1 year ago
Beautiful roses! I purchased 4 quart size At Last & planted 24 days ago & now it’s blooming!Nenita, California, United States, 1 year ago
The At Last Rose is a big disappointment. Right. now, July 20, my two rose bushes are completely without any blooms or buds. So much for blooming all summer. This is in addition to the fact that the blooms only last a day and many of the branches lay on the ground. My At Last bushes are three years old so they should be in peak performance. NOT A FAN!!Missy Soule, Michigan, United States, 1 year ago
I bought one of the at last rose in the spring. It was a very healthy plant and continues to bloom! I decided to get three more in the 2 gallon size. When they arrived the leaves were a light green and the existing flowers were white, eventually being in the sun they turn that beautiful apricot color. Within a weak I noticed leaves changing to a yellow and eventually to black spot on all 3. I don’t think I was sent the healthiest of plants. I have been spraying for weeks and my plants are completely leafless at this point. Everything else in my garden bed shows no sign and struggle or disease so I am going to have to pull them out of my garden. It was a complete waste of money. My first rose is still doing great and giving me blooms galore!Melissa, Wisconsin, United States, 1 year ago
I couldn't be more in love with this rose. I had given up hopes of getting anything like the David Austin look in a healthy rose that had some vigor and fragrance. At Last is just the most gorgeous thing, the blooms satisfy my craving for the romantic old fashioned rose look and the sturdy disease-free growth means I actually have flowers to enjoy! Win win! I have two of them and I'm heading out to get two more!Miss Terry, Ohio, United States, 1 year ago
