Hybrid Musk roses in my opinion, do not get enough press. I have a growing affection for this class of rose and grow a great example in my zone 7b garden. Buff Beauty. I was inspired by Tom @ Tall Clover Farm to grow this rose. His description of its virtues sold me. Planted in the Spring of 2010, this rose is beginning to spread out and up. It needs room to grow, as it will sprawl if you allow it to. It seems to grow best that way. This rose is disease resistant in my garden and has a great repeat blooms. This sequence of photos was taken between April and August of this year. The color variation occurs with the change of seasons.
