Would that be a good rose to use to hold down a creek bank?

One arrived with my order from RVR. Part of the enigma involved why; but it is a rose I've wanted in my garden. I was happy enough to scramble to find a place for it. Right now it's only two or three inches tall, but it sounds like it can grow pretty quickly.

I bet it would be. From the photos it looks like it has a pretty strong affinity with R. multiflora.

So am I. I actually thought I was dying for a couple of days. It was grim. It was a great relief to go to the doctor and find out I had something treatable and temporary.

I remember in '99 I had walking pneumonia. Was NOT pleasant. Got massive headaches from coughing so hard, had it for about 3 weeks. I feel your pain! And am SUPER happy that you're on the mend!! Group hug Group hug Group hug Group hug Group hug
