I would also like to add that Eyepaint is a bit slow off the mark in spring. It is amongst the last of the roses to begin blooming, generally about 3 weeks later. Once started, however, it never stops.

In San Francisco, a tricky climate for growing roses, Eyepaint is a picture of health, vigor and brilliant color. On a foggy day in August, there is nothing more cheering than seeing Eyepaint's vivid red flowers defying the weather in huge numbers. I understand this is not the easiest plant to bud, but I bet it roots easily and grows well on its own roots. My only complaint about Eyepaint is that it is bristling with huge, sharp and vicious prickles. Old canes could be employed in a particularly nasty kind of medieval torture, and the petioles are armed as well. I suppose Eyepaint would make a great boundary hedge to stop intruders. I wouldn't try to get through it without an ambulance waiting for me on the other side. But what a lovely flowering hedge it would make!
