One of this year's highly touted newbies and so far I've liked the blooms. I potted it in April as a bare root and it leafed out but then just sat all through April and May. But it was very cool, wet and gray here so that may be why. However, in June when it warmed up it started to take off and it's done very well all through this heat wave. It's put on some very good growth and bloomed twice. The first flush of blooms were a little small and pale.

But the second flush is a bit larger and the color is much brighter.

It's way too soon to say how good it will turn out to be but if it decides to survive my winters I think I'll keep it for a while and see.

Anyone else give this one a try this year? How is it doing for you?

what a fun rose, Seil! And it holds its bicolor really well, without blotching out badly like some bicolors tend to do.

Thanks, Serena! No, I haven't noticed blotching on it. But they do change color with the weather.

RE: Dick Clark

Mine has tons of blooms on it and they're much darker than what you show - they're almost a burgundy. And the red rim is much thicker on mine. Could be our cooler weather here. However - I'm not that fond of it, because I don't like the blooms. I find them boring. BUT...as a landscape plant it's top notch.

I like the look of yours much more than I like the look of mine. Too much red on mine. Yours looks more ethereal and pleasing. Very nice!!

Thanks, Jim, will do!

Carol, that's odd because mine was paler when it was cooler and is darker now that it's hot. I think the color is yellow and more of a deep cherry pink. Not a true red color. It's right between Veterans' Honor and Crimson Bouquet and it's not red at all compared to those two. Does yours have any fragrance? I don't detect much of anything on mine.
