'Sweet Spirit' earns high marks for Michigan-- rose review

last month

Fragrant, healthy, hardy: this hybrid by Meilland (Elle x Knockout) is a great rose in my garden, plain and simple. It's leaves pretty much shrug off black spot here (about 97% clear), and it along with Quietness were the first hybrid roses to bloom, and they haven't paused yet. Last summer I could count on finding at least a couple of roses on it all summer long to cut for the house; this year's spring flush is memorable.

The flowers are about 4" wide and fragrant -- it is a light scent, but def. there. I do no winter protection, and five canes came back this spring. It is a full 30" rounded bush -- very nice in the landscape. see it here:
