Not Impressed. I recently planted 5 of these blah roses. Foliage is pale green, flowers are a washed out yellow, and there is no smell (I wasn't expecting any because it has never been claimed that it has any scent. It definitely pales in comparison to my Peach Drift roses which are prolific bloomers with amazing colors and deep rich green foliage. Proven Winners is an overpriced brand not worth the effort or price.

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).

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.

When this plant is blooming it's very pretty, but be prepared for a very messy flowerbed. This rose produces so many blooms that the obvious negative side effect is a solid carpet of petals once the bloom fades. Very slow to second flush...Christopher, New York, United States, 41 weeks ago
I've had this for two years now and it's grown so much! It was the first to bloom this year and looks spectacular. I have a lot of the oso easy rose bushes and they all have flourished with zero maintenance!Katie, Maryland, United States, 47 weeks ago
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.Marty Nemko, California, United States, 1 year ago
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, 2 years 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, 3 years 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, 4 years ago
Outstanding beauty & ease of growth. I want more & I want to share it with my friends.Ray Neset, Minnesota, United States, 7 years ago
