well-named

As another reviewer said, it lives up to the name. It's got pretty flowers, and it's a tough and low-maintenance plant. Thumbs up.

My Favorite Rose

If I could have only one rose, this would be it. I have planted the Carefree Beauty in Kansas City and Des Moines, IA and it blooms beautifully in sun or shade, hot or cold. A no maintenance rose (and I have planted over 100 for myself and for our church).

A happy choice

I have had this rose since 1984 and am well pleased. Buck wrote me that I shouldn't expect it to get more than four feet high. There have been winters in northern Iowa which reduce the canes and on those years it only reached three to four feet. After moving it about 125 to the south and planting in a sunny and well protected areas, in mild winters it has reached eight feet. I don't find it as shade tolerant as the other reviewers and as nieghboring trees have grown up it stopped producing flowers and remained very short. It is now doing well after being moved - however the root had gotten so huge after twenty years that it would not come out whole and I now have six healthy happy plants, not one died.

Perfect for a Shady Spot

My first year with the Carefree Beauties. Shade tolerant, great color, and a repeat bloomer. Buck Hardy (Pro. Griffin Buck of Iowa State set out many rose varieties in the Iowa Winter, those which survived he propagated for below zero climates). May order a couple more next Spring.

Shade tolerant beauty

This rose was planted by my daughter when she was 14 is now 32 and carefree beauty lives up to its name. Was planted under a pecan tre by her. It has flourished with little care except fertilizer thrown under it . No black spot etc. massive bloom displays in spring. Endures hot Texas heat also.
