Yes Trish, so far so good with the disease resistance. From now on if I do get any more roses they have to be DR. Right now have Golden Celebration and Abraham Darby that are full of blackspots even with spraying and hate to get rid of them.

Good to "see" you again Millie. Very nice rose indeed.

I know what you mean about disease resistance, Millie. It is the gospel in my garden now and it is hard to find roses that are both really attractive and disease-resistant. My most durable rose is 'Morden Centennial'. It grows in a raised herb bed in blazing hot sun with less than ideal breeze but it is incredibly healthy - and, not that attractive to Japanese beetles.

I would probably hang on to 'Golden Celebration' and 'Abraham Darby', too, even with their issues as they are so lovely.
