Thank you for your review of this extraordinary rose. I have had it in my rather small garden for seven years now, and treasure it.

I agree with the weaknesses you identify – thorniness (she would make an impenetrable hedge), smallish bloom size and largely absent fragrance. But what a display she produces! The blooms are many, elegant and coloured so beautifully and uniquely. During her first, hugely floriferous June display, passers-by stop to take photos. Visitors comment on it above any other of the roses I grow. It is very large, but it can be managed with judicious pruning, and it works beautifully even in my small garden. And it needs no spray. High marks from me!
