Last rose post of the day, promise!

Here's "Simon Estes," working for his 8.5 ARS rating. We've had him since August of last year. Now he's finally come into his own, producing sprays of flowers and not balling every other bud. From our experience so far he's a steady grower, a generous bloomer once he's established, and very, very cold-hardy. My only criticisms are that his flowers bleach fast in the sun and tend to ball in wet weather. Still, when he's fully grown he is going to be awesome.
