I planted Scarlet Meidiland in spring 1995 along with several other roses. The catalog had listed it as "shade tolerant," so I planted it in a shaded area in close proximity to two large oak trees. It has grown in that spot and bloomed beautifully without fail all these years. In reading several reports about it, I have seen that there seem to be differing opinions and observations about its garden qualities, hardiness, and shade tolerance. I have noticed some reports that it grows only 3-4 feet tall and wide. I have not taken a measuring tape to mine, but I can assure that it grows up to and exceeds 6-7 feet in cane height, and spreads as wide. (Ref. first picture below) Shade seems to enhance its growth and color as long as it gets plenty of water.
