Hello everyone, I've got a huge FdY growing against a north facing wall ( that is the warm side here in the SH.) Its own root amd basically very healthy with canes that grow beyond a first floor balcony eave. However no blooms after second year of extraordinary growth. Does it need pruning severely to get itself to bloom? If so, with which criterion?.TiA.Arturo

I also would like to (urgently) know more about this rose! To what zone has this been successfully grown? (I am in Western Maryland, in a mountainous region with many niches ranging through Zone 6a, 6b and 5. The garden is full-sun, south-facing, protected by the house to the north ...I believe I am in the zone 6 range.) Has anyone in my zone/region successfully grown this as a tall climber? Does this rose tend to bleach out considerably with full sun, or does it retain the pink/gold coloration? Is the foliage lush and healthy or is it sparse? How long and how prolific is the bloom time, etc? I am looking for a romantic tall climber of this coloration to wrap around the columns and arch over my wrap-around porch. Ideally, I am looking for a plant that will reach 15 to 20 feet, have foliage that looks nice when the plant is not blooming and have glowing yellow and pink blooms. I am almost to the point of giving up and settling for a tall pink climber like Cecile Brunner or New Dawn that is reliable but not so exciting to me (I really like the yellow mixed in) or looking for a prolific, tall red climber. Any suggestions, comments? (suggestions on tall, prolific red climbers also welcomed!) Thanks very much, all suggestions welcomed! Cynthia

This rose is a hooker (leaps out and grabs passers-by). Don't plant it anywhere near your house or a path! Ditto New Dawn. It would be worth asking a local nurseryman about Crepuscule in your district.

Rosa dumalis is just like that, each curved prickle perfectly angled like a miniature sickle that will rake a bloody furrow at the slightest provocation.

This rose should come with a warning label; I became entangled while mowing and was able to escape only with great difficulty. Don't even think about training it; the wood is very heavy and stiff and the thorns are evil.

I planted this in a rather dry area on a six foot panel fence in north Texas (Dallas area) and the first season it covered 25 feet (3 panels). I might go back to visit it but I surely would not admit to any of the 3 neighbors who may have had a close encounter that I was the guilty party.

A rose for a country estate, NOT the suburbs.

or as a ladder for the climbing beans - as I once did.
