One of the most disease resistant varieties in the rose world…free of black spot, powdery mildew, rust & downy mildew…guaranteed. Old-fashioned spicy-fragrant pure-pink flowers exude a sweet spicy perfume. Lots of almost-rugose grey-green foliage provides the perfect contrast for this showy bloomer. The vigorous plant can be grown as a large spreading shrub or eventually trained as a climber. Bred in Canada & proven perfectly adapted for harsh winter, Cape Diamond is hardy as a rock & survives without winter protection in zone 3.
