Last year I cut this rose down to 3 ft high, and this summer it has grown back to 9 ft tall. The bush reminds me of a camellia, upright and without support. The canes are healthy and vigorous, with no dieback and no trace of disease. The blooms are very double, and do not all apart in the heat. Does not like hot desert weather.
