I was going to toss 'Bolero'...

Last year, 'Bolero' was so damaged by thrips that I was just on the edge of removing all seven bushes. I didn't get around to it, although I complained a lot. No way I can bear removing them now. Third year's a charm? Or is it the blue cup thrips trap?

The plants are compact. The leaves are disease free (not saying a whole lot here, though) and glossy. Flowers are four inches in diameter, deliciously fragrant (I've heard described as waterlily, but there is also sweetened whipped cream in there). Bushes are very slow growing, but certainly not wimpy.
Blue cup just visible behind the bush.

Doesn't it look a little like 'Eden'?
