I LOVE this rose! I first saw it in a friend's garden. More attractive than Knock Outs and easier care too. In my yard it is evergreen. It requires almost no care. Even in this year's drought it has thrived and bloomed with weekly watering, although blooming was not as prolific as last year. Blooms like crazy when evenings cool down. This makes an excellent backdrop because it can attain a nice height. (My friend had them along a back garden wall where they provided a 6-10 foot screen. I haven't successfully taken cuttings yet, but I suspect that is because of the weather this year. I am trying again using woodier cuttings in hopes that cooler Fall weather make let them take. I am getting ready to pull my Knock-Out HomeRun roses in front and replace them with Mutabilis.
A little Rose tone and Bayer meds. and a explosion of color from spring until frost. Lovely specimen!
