I just took a small plant of Mme. Souffrain out of the shipping carton. The three little blooms that were open on her scented the entire room.

I donated $30 to renew premium members to renew my premium membership. Received email for forgotten password, but couldn't proceed past that.

Any advice for a zone 10 gardener? I have two one year old budded Wollerton bushes in the front and they are sending out long octopus arms. I wonder if I used a 7 ft trellis or obelisk if they would quickly overwhelm it or if it makes sense to tame them with something structural? Do I need one per rose or could I combine both of them on one structure? Or am I foolish in expecting that anything will tame a rose that wants to grow long tall canes that flop over neighboring plants?

If you pegged these long shoots down would they flower all the way along their length?

That would be lovely! Hoping someone with experience will weigh in

Pegging down doesn't work well in my zone 9b climate (South Australia) unless you mulch very heavily underneath, because the grass/weeds keep growing all winter. We generally go for the espalier / training on a trellis option. I haven't tried an obelisk so can't comment on that.

Lovely shot, but it looks unusually pink for Perle. If you're sure of the identification then it is an interesting variation.
