Grootendoorst Rose

This is a pink Grootendoorst Rose right out of a garden center.  I had a red version, but roses do not really like it here in my yard.  The soil is talcum powder dry.   
We have tons of rodents and deer, and I just cannot seem to find a place in the yard that they like.  So, I spend lots of time with horse manure, black spot sprays and bug sprays.  With all this pampering, I still get just a fitful display of blooms on any of the roses.
That does not diminish the fact that I love them and I keep trying.  I will come up with a good formula eventually.
