Hardy and determined (Zone 6a)

We found a "weed" of a rose stem buried in weeds along the driveway when we bought our place 3 years ago. We cleared it out, watered and fertilized, and loved this little fighter. This is the only rose on my property that did not come from Heirloom, but is one of the most hardy plants I've encountered.

What a beautiful rose!!

I bought this on a whim and am so happy with this rose. It is so sweet smelling!!

I wasn’t sure where I wanted to put it, so I actually just kept in it’s temporary planter from purchase and put the planter inside a much larger planter until I could find a spot for it.

Well…. A month or so later, it is still there, never planted it. Yet, it has the most beautiful large, fragrant blooms!! I love this roses so much. I really only water it and clip the old blossoms off when needed. Just gorgeous!

Tall plant with strikingly bright (large) blooms

This rose plant was also sold at my local garden center and the tag said zones 5-9. I planted tropicana in zone 5, it bloomed large flowers steadily on the tall bush. (The plant reached about 6 feet.) it’s an Elegant bush and flower. It definitely got powdery mildew towards the later part of summer. For winter protection my landscaper put manure at the base of my roses, then I wrapped it with burlap. I opened them back up today (spring) and there were little buds, it appears to have survived winter!

Mother's Day tale...

I used to buy my mother roses for Mother's Day, and one year my sister said "but those die..." and it really struck me. So I searched for a rose to plant near Mom's back screened porch and Tropicana was my choice. Hot southwest Florida sun, with rock mulch, I was very worried the rose would not do well. But I was wrong! Mom loved the color, and the scent was wonderful!! Highly recommend!

Heirloom Roses are the best. As described, their own root roses initially develop strong roots rather than upward growth. I planted in great amended soil 5 feet deep. After planting, I only watered and occasionally supplemented with their Alaskan fish emulsion.
The plant is strong. After two months, I already enjoyed one gorgeous Tropicana rose.
I'm anticipating many years of wonderful growth and blooms hereafter.
