Ha-ha! I also bought a really nice specimen of Strike it Rich at Home Depot Friday, after doing a lot of internet research about Blackspot resistance and such. I second the request for profiting from anyone else's experience with this rose.

It seems to have plenty of strong canes, although I would have pruned off some of the weaker canes before it leafed out so completely. Mine has buds, I expect some flowers in a few days.

Thanks for any info!

I have had a Strike it Rich for 3 years and it is beside my yellow nacogdoches and is very healthy and has never has BS. I posted a pic of my nacogdoches in a thread called A few rose pics, you can see the SIR behind it. I love the colors, it has shades of yellow and orange and eventually turns a light orangey colors. It's been a good rose for me. Good luck with yours!
