Golden Celebration in NJ?
By reading past posts on this forum, I got the impression that people had vastly different experience with this rose. If you grow GC at the locals in or near New Jersey non-spray, could you share your experience with this one. I am particularly interested in learning about its blackspot resistance around this area.
I saw a potted GC at a local nursery and was seriously tempted. However, I have really no garden space (which of course did not prevent me from adding a dozen roses this spring), but wants one more big bush that is reasonably blackspot resistant here. I have a dozen or so Austins already. Except for Lady Emma Hamilton (who tends to be barenaked most of the time) and perhaps Tamora, all tend to do very well as far as black spot goes (which to me, means 1/4 defoliation).
