I do so love the flowers on 'William Shakespeare 2000'. Rich color, rich fragrance. It's too bad that this year seemed to show that this is not the best climate for this rose. Nice flush in the spring, some of which fried in the sun. Not to mention the plant that was trashed by the wind. Not another flower until now, when I get...one. Since my two bushes produced a few flowers throughout the summer last year, I'll give it another year to see if it does better.
