I had to replace my shrub of Double Delight last year and have been anxious to see blooms from the replacement I planted this spring. Finally, a bloom. Not only does this rose produce a beautiful colorful bloom, it is highly fragrant. By that, I mean you can cut a stem and bring it inside and it will fill the room with fragrance.
Introduced in 1976, this rose was an AARS Winner in 1977. It currently holds an ARS rating of 8.3
If I had room, i would grow at least six of these. Do you grow this rose? What experience have you had with it?
