I wouldnt say its the strongest of my roses @rachelbrooks, but not sickly. Its a good repeater and has great scent. And has an old-fashioned habit..tight and prickly with dark leaves. A bit more prone to blackspot than some, but I spray with fungicide in the spring and that really helps.
Thanks, very helpful. One thing CdeM doesn't seem to suffer with is black spot and as much as I love it I think I may have to replace it...this one sounds a good choice especially as it repeat flowers, which CdeM doesn't! They do sound similar form though 👌🏼
