I am a professional rose breeder and this is my key breeder because it's excellent in every way, per the others comments. Disease-resistant, floriferous, well-clothed with glossy foliage, symmetrical, compact (3o") ---I haven't even smelled the flowers but having just read the comments, I'm going to do so right now.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
This plant is hardy in zones 4 - 9
Zones are based on the lowest average temperature an area is expected to receive during the winter. They are used to determine whether a plant is likely to be perennial in your area. If your zone is equal to or higher than the zone listed for the plant, it will be hardy for you and thrive in your climate.

This variety rebels against the idea that roses are hard to grow! No spraying, no deadheading, just lots of flowers all season long!
Similar to 'Peace' in its coloration, the orange buds of Oso Easy Italian Ice® rose open to soft yellow flowers melting into pink blushed margins. The soft flower color is set off nicely by its dark green, glossy foliage. Flowers are semi-doubled, with 24-30 petals per bloom. This self-cleaning rose has excellent disease-resistance, abundant flowers, and a nice habit, making it an excellent plant for home gardens.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingDeadheading Not NecessarySalt Tolerant

I have 4 of these Italian Ice rose bushes....They are beautiful and I just dare you to find a rose that smells better! They are prolific bloomers and bees love them!anita sauer, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
This is definitely my favorite rose bush! Not only is the color beautiful but the smell is incredible! It will fill up the immediate area with a wonderful scent! Easy to grow, too! I have 3 and just ordered another one!Anita Sauer, North Carolina, United States, 1 year ago
A definite proven winner in my yard. I have five plants which sit on a south facing slope blooming all summer long from June through September. Rebloom is great and the colors are a bit variable lending a vibrant look to the garden. The plants have spread slowly but steadily over the 3-4 years I've had them and have filled in a nice section of the garden. Big compliments from the neighbors!ellen Gager, Colorado, United States, 3 years ago
