Just chipping in to say Bonica is a lovely rose - you'll have no problems with it once it gets going - doesn't seem to get any of the usual lurgies, beautiful foliage, the prettiest clear pink blooms and copes with a few greenfly without any problems.
I've grown them in three different gardens over the years and they've always come up trumps, covered with beautiful blooms (perfect for cutting too) the whole of the summer. They look lovely in a vase with some Alchemilla mollis.
Their only flaw is a weak scent, but I'll forgive that when the rest of the rose is so good.
