If you keep up with deadheading, 'Fourth Of July' keeps blooming.

The bestest foliage is that which is a descended from Dortmund. Dark green, mildew-proof and shinier than shiny, almost like holly. Dortmund blooms only last a day however, so I would get one of its offspring, like Shadow Dancer or Flamingo Dancer. I think Burlington Roses has both of those -- Shadow Dancer is big, and Flamingo Dancer is a bit less vigorous and therefore a bit shorter -- so take your pick. Or just get both -- they would be spectacular together.
