I am quite fond of this offspring of 'Gourmet Popcorn' called 'Pillow Fight'.. It is a charming, fragrant, small to medium shrub rose with lots of blooms. I have it grown as a standard. I'm not really crazy about rose standards but this one had such a dense and draping structure that I made an exception and added it to the garden about eight years ago. On the Weeks Roses website is says that it does well in dry climates which is good news. It rarely get any disease. I would certainly buy it again if I ever found it at a nursery!

Dear Sheila, I love the way you photograph roses in threes - very effective. I wonder what fragrance 'Pillow Fight' has. 'Fluffy' is a good title for the posting. P. x
