Hi all,
Thinking about this rose as a climber. Four feet wont cut it, anyone get more length from it?

I wouldn't recommend growing it as a climber, the stems are stiff and not very workable

I have seen this growing at the rose garden in Portland, Oregon as climbing a pillar. Must be at least 8-10 feet and looks spectacular. I'm growing mine on a fence trained into the usual fan shape for climbers. The fence is five feet tall and I'm sure it will easily go beyond that. I'm in southern California, zone 10b.

Thanks Plazbo. The patent drawing shows prickles. I’ve deleted “thornless”.

One of my favourite roses. Fragrance 10/10 - maybe the most fragrant of all roses - really amazing. I like the rounded infolded cabbagey blooms, great colour, a bit of blackspot, but very healthy and vigorous otherwise. Really worth putting at the front of the bed or garden entrance to enjoy the fragrance. I have about 150 roses - all of which had to be very fragrant to be chosen - this one is right at the top.

I'm having the same experience with Jude here in Z8.
