This rose has been fabulous. It has survived ice storms, heavy snows, extreme cold and summer heat with not one bit of extra care. The foliage always looks wonderful. Never any bug holes or black spot, and I don't do anything to it. Produces many hips for winter interest. One thing that I must say, though, is that it grows really long canes for me! Even cutting it back in spring to 3 feet, by the end of summer, I have canes at least 8 feet long. The rose gets between 3 and 4 feet tall. I did buy it at an upscale nursery, so I am confident it was the correct rose, as it still had the metal tag on it. I have looked it up online and noticed that others mention how large it gets. I have also noticed that it roots by layering. I have two other plants that I moved by letting the canes root well for a year, then digging and moving.
