Does anyone know if this rose would do well in a large pot? Thanks.

Unless you live in cold climate, I think this is way too large and vigorous for a pot. But I could be wrong -- with proper pruning, and a REALLY big pot, it could work.

I found a post in Gardenweb by someone who grows 4 of these in partial shade. She stated that it has a great scent, almost thornless. Rogue Valley Roses listed it hardy to zone 4. I got mine from Burlington Roses, my own-root is almost thornless, the flowers have a fabulous scent, with excellent repeat.

There may be an error somewhere on this. My Excellenz that I got from Vintage has a good, strong fragrance as opposed to "none" listed here. Also, the photos in HMF fall into two categories, pink and mauve. Mine is the more mauve color. Is it possible that there are two different roses here?

Yes, see previous discussions under Member Comments on the Excellenz von Schubert page.

Almost everything you say about a rose called Excellenz von Schubert is wrong! It is a purple Hybrid Musk, with a delicious heavy scent, not a deep pink Polyantha with no to mild fragrance. Gregg Lowery says: Long clusters of small, full, grape-purple to crimson flowers, sweetly scented, on a plant of moderate growth with burnished, olive-green foliage. A Lambertina of exceptional quality; the bright panicles of bloom make quite a show in the garden. He gives it four r's for repeat bloom, and three f's for fragrance, and lists it among the Hybrid Musks.

See the comments already on the page for this rose - there seem to be two roses using the name. Does the purple one set hips? Does the pink one?

I love the flowers so much that I never let mine set hips. Haven't seen the pink one.

I don't recall any hips. I don't deadhead.

Cass, which one do you have? There are no descendants listed for Excellenz von Schubert; plenty for Gartendirektor Otto Linne.

I grow both, Margaret. I have 4 plants of the mauvey, scented, red-caned rose that has pompon-type blooms (sold as EVS). I have only one plant of the pink rose that grows like a floribunda (sold as GOL).

All the early sources agree on 'Excellenz von Schubert' being a carmine-pink rose. This means that the identification by Vintage gardens is incorrect.

Could you please cite some of those "early sources"? Thanks

Just go to the rose page and click on the REFERENCES tab. You will find several references that site both color and class for the rose.
