You can drape this rose--on a fence or a wall or a pillar.  In fact, it DEMANDS to be draped, or swagged, or braided through something.  Otherwise it gets lanky and messy and unless you have unlimited space, grows out of bounds.  But the canes are plentiful and pliable, so if you take the time to direct it, you can do alot of neat things with it!  It's very durable and doesn't need coddling either--a nice attribute in a rose.

In breeding this rose the breeder first crossed a wichuranna with a (chestnut rose x musk rose) cross. He then crossed the resulting rose with another cross I am constrained to put below.

A different (chestnut rose x musk rose) cross crossed in turn with a wichuranna and then that resulting mess crossed with-

a (chestnut rose x musk rose) cross that was then crossed with a miniature.

Sounds almost depraved but recognizing the strength of the Rose 'Sea Foam' that was crossed back with its parents 4 or 5 times it would seem to be a recipe for success.
