Campfire Roses, anyone grow them?

I'm really intrigued by these. There's not much information on them, out there and I thought someone on here might have some experience with them. Mostly interested in how often they rebloom and general experience. They're a Morden product so hardiness is a given.

Don't see why not - looks like a fairly basic floribunda to me (and not remotely to my taste either) but I do appreciate why hardiness is such an issue for those of you in northern climes...and this one does seem to fit the bill. There are a surprising number of roses which can be grown in Z3 and even Z2 - I think climbers are a bit trickier as many will be killed to the soil level. A number of once flowering roses, which bloom on older wood are also impossible for those in chilly climates.

might want to ask the same in the rose forum ...

The only problem that I can see with this lovely rose is disease resistance. Do you by any chance have Sunrise Sunset a baileys rose. It would be crown hardy for you. It's continuous bloom, disease free and grows each year to 3x4.( more as she ages) Many Kordes roses would also be crown hardy and totally healthy. Just throw some mulch or straw over the crown in winter for the first year or two while they beef up their crown and roots. Buy them own root for extra hardiness. If you don't mind spraying Campfire is a great rose.

I have the (low brow) carpet roses incorporated into flower beds. In this zone they're a novelty. Overwintering is pretty straightforward. Plant four inches below grade - in the fall, cut the canes to twelve inches and tie together. Cover with egg case cardboard boxes and pack in chopped leaves. In the spring most canes are still green. Never had losses. Information was on GW and other northern sites.

Found more information on Campfire rose and they are suppose to be disease resistant. Looks pretty good.
