We've had these beautiful roses growing in our yard for at least 3 yrs now. I planted 3 of them as a back drop to the Oso Easy Italian Ice roses we bought at the same time. At the time, I thought the Italian Ice roses would be the stunners of the group. However, I was wrong, because these roses are the ones people stop to look at & ohhhh & ahhhh over. :) They perform yr after yr, whether I prune them or not. A constant bloomer all Summer & into Fall here. They have the richest pink color, full blooms, & beautiful dark green foliage that makes everything in that part of the garden pop & stand out.

Lovely plant, flowers are so full and beautiful. I do like the shine to the leaves. Planted last spring and came back wonderfully!.. I just can't get rid of the aphids! Spray almost every day!Carol Macleod, Connecticut, United States, 3 years ago
I've had this lovely rose for three years in a container flower garden of about 30 plants that I grow and maintain in a patio microclimate that I'm guessing is one full zone warmer than the city around us - zone 6. About 90% of the garden is perennial. It gets 4-6 hours ffff direct sun. The potting soil, Miracle Grow with added fertilizer and water crystals. It's well watered in the summer. Our climate is very dry. The rose thrives. Last year it put out a blooming stem from the root ball that grew quite tall and had a dozen perfect blooms. I cut it off at the root and put it in a pitcher of water. It was astonishing! Livin'la Vida is a delightful smaller rose (16" H x 16" W. I fertilized it with Jobe's Rose cnn spikes for the first time this year. I recommend this rose to all rosarians and beginners alike. It will be beautiful in a in a pot or the ground.Judith Clausen, Colorado, United States, 4 years ago
