While not my favorite plant, it is my favorite rose! Beautiful all summer. Energizer Bunny Rosa!Sharon Globig, Michigan, United States, 12 years ago
These little plants (which you were kind enough to provide to me to test) took all the heat and drought and kept right on growing and performing and blooming! Lovely color, strong repeat bloom and minimal watering required! Great plant!Karla, Connecticut, United States, 12 years ago
