I chose this rose for my yard because of the color, it doesn't have much scent. My poor roses this year. I was out of town, actually out of the country, during the whole early spring season, so they didn't get their regular TLC. They have survived just fine, but I notice the leaf colors aren't quite the same. Below is what the blooms on this plant look like after a few days of their glory - they fade to peach. This rose is a continual bloomer.
