Top Notch aka Simply the Best

Bought this rose at Mesquite Valley Growers in 2008. It did very well this year. It gets morning sun and afternoon shade. It lives inside our west wall. I use a mix of chemical and organic fertilizers, and plenty of water. Have not used any chemical sprays. The only issues it has is aphids and spider mites, which are easily gotten rid of with a strong spray of water.
It is a floribunda, and has beautiful apricot-yellow blooms, depending on the weather. The leaves are a dark glossy green. This photo was taken in May.
I love this rose!
