Secret's Out vs. Sugar Moon, also White Gold
Which do you prefer, and why?
I am considering a massed planting of five or six of one or the other of these first two roses. Qualities I am interested in include the following:
->strength and quality of fragrance
->repeat bloom - how much? I want to be assured of a good display about 6 weeks after my normal peak spring flush. I would be willing to disbud that flush if it would delay the flush enough. Never tried this, so I don't know if this is a practical plan.
->disease resistance, especially to PM. I do not spray except for a single dormant winter spray of copper fungicide
->growth habit -- how tall, how wide?
Nearby in large clay pots I am considering planting three of the floribunda 'White Gold'. I'm leery of mixing different whites too close together, in case brighter whites make softer whites look dirty, which I have seen in gardens. But do please tell me what you think of that rose as well.
