'Cramoisi Superieur' in Okeechobee, Florida

I bought this plant for Mom and Dad from The Antique Rose Emporium......Mom now passed but Dad and I both think I gave it to them at least 8 years ago. Dad never sprays it, feeds it mostly chemical fertilizers and prunes it annually each early spring. His low lying property gets quite soggy in summer, with water standing for days after a hurricane, then gets bone dry each winter. Yet it prospers on its own roots year after year, always in bloom to some degree, at times spectacularly. I just visited are two pics he took of it with me beside it for scale.  John
