"I Have a Dream"

My Belinda's Dream rose may be putting on her best show to date. These blooms are full, huge, fragrant, and plentiful. I could not ask for a better rose in Louisiana.

Notice the whole plant. There's not a spot of disease showing. The plant is thriving and blooming like crazy. I have not put any spray on this plant since April. The only care it has had was 2 scoops of rabbit pellets in the spring and a layer of mulch that is now overgrown with bermuda grass. I do have an irrigation system so it gets plenty of water even in droughts. Please click on this bottom photo so you may see it in larger format.

I am not familiar with this rose. What class is it? Beautiful bloom.

It's considered a shrub rose. It was developed by a Dr. Basye from Texas.
