Good morning Mr. and Mrs. Velle.
This photo, taken by Cass, of Robe de Neige ( http://www.helpmefind.com/gardening/l.php?l=21.157757 ) shows a climber, but in the book of Ivo Pauwels is written that this rose is 60 cm high and so WAS the description on HMF.
The photo is taken at Your nursery, so You might know if the height and/or the rose is correct.
Would You please give Your comment.

Dear Mr,
Louis Lens introduced this rose as a ground cover, height 60 cm.
We planted the rose as a ground cover as a neigbour of Climbing Pascali which was supposed to grow on the arch in our rose garden.
After several years we noticed that the climbing Pascali didn't flower enough and that the Robe de Neige
was an magnificant climber. The other plants of Robe de Neige in the same area were pruned each year till 50-60 cm and used to behave as a shrub. So then we have clasified the rose in our catalogue with the shrubs and mensioned that you can use this rose as climber as well.
Kind regards

Ann Velle

Thank You for Your kind reply and explanation, I'll order one as well as other Lens roses this fall. (maybe via De Bierkreek or directly.) This rose isn't listed under the Buy From-tab on HMF as available at Your nursery.
