I was thinking of getting this rose this year. Obviously, by your photo, it's gorgeous - but what do you think of it in your garden
-repeat
-flowering amount
-fragrance
Thanks! Love your photo.

Look at that beautiful big bud! Will it get a chance to open or will you bring it inside?

Well, this is a first year rose that I purchased from Hortico. Some of you know, when you get roses from Hortico and open the package, you say, "What are these twigs?" For whatever reason, these roses flourish in my awful desert soil. Old Fragrance (now 3 years old) was 7 feet tall this season. Back to CDG, it had 10 blossoms this season with good repeat and okay fragrance. I expect a better scent next season but, this being the desert, roses smell nothing like they did when I lived on the East Coast. On the plus side, no BS here as there is little humidity. I would heartily recommend this rose if you want a stunning lavender.

Oooh!! Sounds lovely. Hopefully the fragrance will improve as the rose bush matures.
