'Bulls Eye' is crown hardy in zone 3, Alberta, Canada if there is snow cover.

I have seen Bull's Eye at several un-sprayed gardens in the northeast and it is certainly healthy, with the exception of a touch of mildew. It has a nice moderate fragrance that reminds me of rugosa roses (anyone know where that scent comes from?). The growth is a little awkward; upright like a hybrid tea. Given the vigorous growth habit and long stems, I keep expecting bigger flowers; but alas, they are consistently small. The colors are beautiful. I love the change from yellow and cranberry to white and purple.

One correction to the description on HelpMeFind. This rose is definitely NOT thornless. It has many, many vicious curved thorns, the kind that grab you as you walk by.

Yeah, it grows like a tall grandiflora here, too, but with small flowers in huge sprays. Quite spotless from disease. Doesn't seem to mind blooming in mid-August, unlike most roses. If only this rose was shorter, it would have been really great. I am unsure where the fragrance from. Just as unsure about the given lineage for Blue For You, which seems like it is missing something. Perhaps Rhapsody in Blue, or the like.
