Thanks for the input Protoavis--as always, it is good to hear from you as I appreciate your (and everyone else's expertise on roses).
My Brother Cadfael (own root that I grew from a cutting) is now taller than the eaves and is still going towards the sky. My grafted one stays about 8 feet tall or so. So now I know that root stock can make a difference in height. Never put two and two together before as roses get so big here anyway. If a DA rose states it gets to be about 2--3 feet in height or width, I pretty much have to double or triple it to get the actual size here.
I love how DA lists Princess Alexandra of Kent as good for containers. Maybe grafted but on her own root, you would need a container the size of Antarctica! She grew to over 10 feet tall her first year! She was also about 5 feet wide and ate anyone that dared to walk past her towards my front door. Needless to say, she has been moved.
You know, Vap, I moved my P of AK, in almost the same spot as my grafted Sharifa Asma (about 7--10 feet away) but both got the same amount of sun in that area, daily. P of AK never grew more than a couple of feet tall. Where she gets partial shade, she just goes all out and gets to be extremely big and tall and blooms like crazy. So glad for everyone's input on this. Helps to increase my limited knowledge, which I appreciate very much.
