This is my third year growing At Last. When it was smaller (the last 2 years) I didn’t quite notice the spindly growth habit. This third year it has grown much larger even only being May. The blooms and scent are so so lovely. The blooms fade to a peachy white in the heat, so in the summer they are more muted. In the spring/fall they are more apricot at first. The blooms do only last 1 day in the summer or 2 in the cooler months. I have a cottage style garden, so my rose is nestled closely with other flowering plants helping to distract from the spindly stems. I would not be happy if I had this as a stand-alone rose. The stems are very thin, so the large areas of many buds/blooms do tend to get weighed down. I am not sure I can recommend this knowing what I do now, I plan to cut it back quite a bit once buds open in hopes that the next flush will look better on the plant. Once this rose is done with its life, I plan to buy another type of apricot rose. The color/flowers are stunning, the plant leaves much to be desired (pun intended).

This easy-care rose defies conventional expectations of what a rose needs to thrive in your landscape. To keep it looking great, simply prune back by at least one third its total height each early spring, just as the new buds begin to emerge on the stems. Make your cut just above a thick, healthy bud, as these produce the most vigorous growth. It can also be fertilized at this time with a granular rose fertilizer.
The plant may be deadheaded if desired, but this is not required for continuous bloom.At Last® Rosa x 'HORCOGJIL' USPP 27,541, Can 5,631

I purchased three of the At Last Roses last year in the quart size. As soon as I got them into the ground BOOM, they began blooming for the entire summer through fall and had magnificent growth. This year I ordered three of the gallon size. Again, as soon as I put them into the ground the show began. Before At Last, I never really cared much for roses. The sent of the flowers is like nothing I've ever experienced in my landscape endeavors. I have just one question for Proven Winners, can I smell the entire scent out of one flower? My neighbors think I do! It is hard to get my sniffer into another flower. I just smell one and it is over. This Rose is one of the easiest plants for your garden. Disease-free., Ohio, United States, 27 weeks ago
I'm in Zone 5b according to the US charts. I really like this rose. The first two seasons it had beautiful flowers but not many - less than a handful. This year - BOOM. Lots of flowers. I got some pointy tipped pruning shears and think I pruned it correctly, as soon as a flower died. I'm looking at it right now and couldn't be happier. I went back to the garden center but it had be sold and is being converted to condos. What a shame I hope they show up again on the internet., Ontario, Canada, 32 weeks ago
I bought these in April and have had them in the ground for 3 months. It's definitely growing and there are many blooms but we live in a hunid Zone 6a and I'm constantly battling powdery mildew and black spot. I have lots of blooms but they aren't long lasting so I always have petals wound everywhere adding to the moisture problem. They're probably great in drier climates but it's a chore to keep disease away compared to other varieties so I might have to replace these in a year or two once I feel like I've gotten out of them what I paid., Missouri, United States, 41 weeks ago
I purchased 4 of these rose bushes for the perfect location that met all the qualifications for success. WRONG! Terribly disappointed with the performance. Petals fall as fast as the plant blooms as it remains green. I would never buy this plant again!, New York, United States, 44 weeks ago
This is the third year for these roses, thought this was the year they would leap, but no such luck. Such a disappointment. The flower itself is beautiful but the stems are weak and spindly and the flowers only last a day or so and shed piles of petals below the plants on a daily basis. This year they bloomed like crazy for about 2-3 weeks at the beginning of the season and no blooms since. One of the plants is yellowing and looks like it has some sort of disease. I am a seasoned gardener. The roses were fed and watered properly. These are in a spot that gets full sun, right in the front of my garden in zone 5. I gave 2 stars because the flower is very beautiful and fragrant when it decides to make an appearance.., Wisconsin, United States, 44 weeks ago
Zone 5 a I also saw Laura on garden answer say wonderful things about this rose. Well, I wonder if she’d say the same thing now? Mine are on summer number two. The petals drop instantly after it blooms it’s covered in Blackspot and thin limbs make it look frail and sickly. The dropped petals are rather messy looking because there are just so many of them. They just drop and it doesn’t have anything to do with wind or rain. It’s not really a full sun rose. I think southern exposure is too much for them. I plan to move them at the end of the season to the east side of my home where the sun will be a bit more gentle. I gave it a two star only becuase the scent is very nice. One thing…bees do not bother with it unlike my other roses. Not sure why that is., Wisconsin, United States, 48 weeks ago
Planted 3 gallon size in the fall zone 6. They are blooming wonderfully in a hot sunny spot. Love the color!, Michigan, United States, 48 weeks ago
I adore these roses! I live in 6B zone and they have thrived in the last 3 years. When I first got them they were about six to eight inches tall, early June of 2018. They bloomed that year a lot, I'm surprised it didn't weigh down the little branches. Now they are quite big and have so many blooms you can't even see branches. The blooms may not last terribly long each, but they are replaced with new blooms very quickly. And the smell is wonderful. When we have the windows open the entire house gets a lovely rose scent. I wish I could add pictures, Kentucky, United States, 49 weeks ago
I ordered 1 quart containers and promptly put them in a ground on well prepped ground. These roses are in a spot that will be quite hot and might get a bit neglected so I wanted something tough. We have not done the scorching summer heat just yet but have had some early 90s and they appear very happy with the heat so far. They are already blooming. Giant blooms on little plants and are quite robust. These roses are some of the least finicky starts I have tried. So far everything is excellent and extremely healthy. Roses tend to do well here anyways but sometimes they look a bit disheveled in the middle of the summer when it gets 108 or so. Hopefully these will still put on some blooms., California, United States, 1 year ago
