I have planted these sweet roses along the path of my garden. Since the day I planted them they given me much joy. They are very sweet, as their name. With a soft tea rose sent I love them so much, I plan to plant them around my deck. Take it from me once you buy one you'll be back for more.

This rose performed beautifully for me in Northern California. At one year, it spread to a width of 3.5ft but stayed under 20" in height. It bloomed all summer with a profusion of lovely pink flowers, with a deeper pink color developing in October. Highly recommend this rose. Low maintenance and happy in a full sun position. Great coverage.
