I received Kitty Kay (Coming Up Roses X 89-29G: (Social Event x Femme Fatale) last year from a friend, and it has taken a whole year to mature to the point that I think I'll see a bloom on it this spring. 
One of Kitty Kay's Parents -  Coming up Roses was a slow grower and increaser for me. Femme Fatale was lovely but sadly also a slow grower/increaser (barely able to make it year to year).  Social Event on the other hand was a healthy great growing plant that performed very well here for me.  I was kind of hoping that the great growing/performing genes from SE would help Kitty Kay out, but it doesn't sound like it from what I've just read.  I'll let you know what happens with mine.

Kitty Kay doesn't like Denver either!!!  It's limping along.  I just transplanted it, what was left of three plants ordered and planted in 2002 when it was introduced.  I believe I still only have three plants.  Oh well.

Margie, have you tried to grow this one?  Iíve had it for three years, and itís still alive which is all I can say for it.  It has given me a few a few faded, disappointing blooms.  Iím threatening it now.  ďBloom beautifully this spring, or youíre out of here.Ē
