This rose has been a big disappointment. I saw it last autumn on Garden Answer and fell in love with the radiant coral color. It was the same shade depicted in PW’s Gardener’s Idea Book for 2023. Alas, the one rose the bush has produced is just plain orange. Not coral—orange. And that rose quickly fried in my full sun bed, so I have not found Reminiscent Coral to be heat tolerant as advertised, I have been hoping that the problems with this first bloom were a fluke and the next ones would be more as expected—but the bush has not produced any more roses. Just one, in 3.5 months. Otherwise, the bush seems healthy. This is not the first time I’ve grown roses, either, so I am mystified. Waste of money!

These easy-care roses defy 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.Reminiscent® Coral Rosa x 'BOZFRA221' USPP 34, Can PBRAF

I absolutely love this rose The blooms are huge and it blooms like crazy. The color is a nice saturated coral that hasn't faded in the summer sun. It has stayed short so it is perfect for the front of the bed.Cozzette2, Oregon, United States, 5 weeks ago
