Please share your thoughts about these three:
Does one stand out as a superior plant, performer, or beauty?
The first has been reliably hardy here. The last has done nothing in three years.
I would agree with mantis. Rose Masterpiece does good here but tends to be top heavy in buds. Cerise Masterpiece is not increasing. Beautiful bloom but maybe time for it to be moved and see what happens next year.
Thanks, sounds like RM might be a better choice.
Anyone else have experience with any of these?
I don't grow the other two, but Rose Masterpiece will be one I always have with me. Early flowering (one of my first to bloom), large blooms with good substance, lovely color with little to no blotching, reliably winter hardy. It always elicits comments from visitors. Personally, I can't think of a thing not to like about it........Maryl
Thank you too, Maryl. Looks like it's unanimous so far!
Anyone else? Surely someone has grown Cerise Beauty?
