This rose is so beautiful! It seems to have a strong color transition like ‘Double Delight’, but be a bit more vigorous. I wish it had stronger fragrance. It sets lots of large op hips. Just wondering if others have tried it as a parent yet and what others’ experience with it is. I hope to give it a try next year and cross it with some of the healthy, hardy shrub roses adapted in the North.
I’ve not even seen White Lies, but the similar appearing Cherry Parfait proved a good parent in both directions for me. At least in my climate, it’s healthy, vigorous, fertile (again, both directions), as attractive as the photos of White Lies and, like it, also lacks the scent of Double Delight.
