OMG! Star of the Republic!!!

I thought I was buying Spirit of Freedom, but am now glad for the mistake! This morning I came across an old post of pretty petals on this rose and dashed out to see my bud when I came home. Can we just say "Wow"!!! Amazing bloom with exquisite fruity fragrance reminding me of Lychee. Luscious. I'm planting it in my front yard that is Cinco de Mayo and lilac colours. It looks fantastic with CdM, although it won't really be close to it at all. Love this rose. Please everyone that grows it comment and add your own pictures. I'd especially like to hear from those who've had it for a while. Thanks all! : ))
