Earthsong's colors really get hot with the onset of cooler weather. They are a much lighter shade of pink when the sun is hot in the summer. This plant really commands attention this time of year.
This is truly a versatile rose. It's pretty disease resistant without spraying, takes little care, and has a sweet fragrance. It takes our hot weather very well and I'm told it is a wonderful rose for colder climates since it was developed in Iowa by Dr. Griffith Buck. I recommend it for both the North and South.
