Hi rose friends,
I planted a specimen of Pierre de Ronsard in May 2016 against a South facing wall. The plant is very healthy but it lacks growth. It has some blooms but very little new shoots. It's still only 120 cm tall. I've always heard that Eden / Pierre is quite vigorous but my experience is different. Does it need some time to establish and really start growing? As i said: it's very healthy and the 10 flowers i get are stunning and keep on the plant for more than two weeks. I can detect no smell wich is the only negative aspect of this rose.

Eden needs some time to establish. Over here, it needed almost three years, to grow from a bush-like form into a climber. And yes, it takes some time to start blooming and in our garden it has 2 or 3 flushes, with just very few scattered flowers.
It can get a very little bit of Blackspot. I fertilize twice a year in March and June. Only watered it a few times in the first two years after planting.
Right now it's having it's this years' second flush.
Just exercise some patience....
Good luck!

Ik zou U hetzelfde willen aanraden. (I would like to advise You the same)

Right now, despite the drought, the heat and the blazing sun, it flowers. The coloring is more intense. A scent can be absent, but can be strong too, when the circumstances are right: A cool morning with dew, or a damp sunset after a not too sunny day.

My experience with this rose is that while it had gorgeous globular blooms, fine form, lovely color.... the plant was stingy. Granted, it was kept in a container, so perhaps it does better when planted?

Growth was ungainly long branches that would have been fine if tied off to a trellis or something. (Only 2-3 long canes, not much branging out).

My nose couldn't detect a fragrance.

*In my opinion, Princess de Monaco would be a fair substitute, grows well in a container, and blooms also have that lovely round shape, cream or white color with pink edging. Less stingy also. I really liked Eden's flowers though... when it decided to bother with blooming. ;)

I've purchased an Eden rose last year and it stands against a southern facing wall. It grew a bit and produced 1 flower wich lasted for 2 weeks, there was no visual sign of sickness and it kept it's leaves in Winter. Now, may 2017 it still has it's glossy folliage and it produced 15 very big rosebuds so i think the flowers are gonna be very big. No strong growth until now but maybe it will start after this first flush. I agree with some earlier comments that this rose needs some time to really start off but as i mentioned, it is very disease resistant in Flanders Belgium, wich has rather rainy summers and medium cold winters. When the flowers open (i think within 2 weeks) i'll post a picture.
