Not at all. This one has been one of the ones to withstand the cyclone winds we had. My black Magic was almost as tall (right next to it) and I had to cut it right back because it was so damaged Sad

Hi,
I love Blueberry Hill. It doesn't have a lot of petals but it's a lovely elegant rose.

Hi,
I don't know - I'll nick out tomorrow and have a sniff.
I prefer roses with not too much scent - if they have too strong a scent, I don 't like them inside.
