One of my favorite

It bloom and bloom, adore the color.

Easy to maintain and stunning

I live in WA state. Roses have always terrified me but when I saw the name of this rose, I had to buy it.
It has been so good for my ego! It took off and has been so low maintenance! I've had it since 2020 and it grew out of its cage by 2021.
Seriously, every once and awhile I'll deadhead it but that is it. It is in full sun and is super happy.

Doing Fine

My Hot Cocoa survived winter in SE Ohio nicely and has been putting out blooms that I've been cutting and enjoying inside. Love the color.

Pleasantly surprised by its performance

Another variety I bought to balance out my color range in the rose garden I was establishing. Planted 3 years ago in zone 8. The color saturation in the blooms is intense and rich, a real eye-catcher. The plant has lush foliage, blooms are tall, upright, great for cutting, and it does well with insect & disease pressure. Has performed better than expected.

A winner

After an uncertain start after planting last year, my HotCocoa is now putting out an abundance of lush, burnished leaves. I pruned it very lightly over winter, so it's already a good size. Last year, it produced several small roses, and I have a feeling it's going to be the first to perform this year. It's a beauty!
