Interesting Facts:

  • Good disease resistance to blackspot and powdery mildew.
  • Story of Quietness Name: Perhaps just another variance of the story of Quietness. The rose that would be known as Quietness was found growing in the edge of his field after Dr. Buck’s death with only a reference number attached to it. He never had a chance to see what a wonderful rose he had created. Supposedly the rose was named by Dr. Buck’s wife and daughter in memory of those lost on 9-11-01. The legend grows.
