2015: Bought two plants from Bayside Nursery in the spring. Planted them in the back bed along the fence in a fairly sunny spot (well, sunny for my yard). They flowered well until I noticed one plant was lagging behind. It developed cancker (or so I think). I called Bayside for advise and they offered to replace it. New rose planted in late summer. I installed a plastic mesh fence ( about 2′ tall & in diameter) on stakes in attempt to keep the bunnies away over winter.
