There are eight of these in my front garden now, the fragrance strong and everyone comments as they pass by on their beauty and smell.

Purchased three bareroots from Angel Gardens, Mar 2012.

Update Oct 2012- Growth has been rather slow, but they've bloomed consistently. I haven't bent over far enough to sniff the flowers yet. Color does fade, but I forgive that- this IS Texas after all. B/S tend to affect one of the three, but not a huge problem.

April 2013- A few blooms here and there, but the bushes haven't grown an inch in over a year. Slow starters?

Sept 2013- Potted due to impending move. One of the three LEH had expired, the other two are doing well.

Mar 2014- Another LEH bit the dust after winter; one left and I'm not too sure about it either.

July 2014- Rebounding and blooming a bit, though painfully small. My little survivor is MAYBE 12 inches in all directions and looks like a round ball. Burned foliage. Not heat tolerant (95+) AT ALL.

Oct 2014- Dug LEH up to relocate to a shadier spot and saw canker all the way onto the bud union. It was still very small, with only one main cane, and an inferior root system. I don't know if it could have been saved or not, but I tossed it with a heavy heart. I wanted this one to work.

Notes- I would say that this rose is one who needs afternoon shade in a high heat environment. I had/have none, and this rose simply can't handle full sun in Texas, zone 9a (houston).
