The description page says the size is 1.5 metres high by 0.9 metres wide. However, the latest reference for this rose gives the size as "massive" and "nine feet high". Chapman et al describe it as "tall and spreading", implying a width that equals or exceeds the height.

Obviously size will depend on age and growing conditions, but 1.5 x 0.9 metres does seem a bit on the skimpy side.

Perhaps in a cold climate. But mine is almost 9 feet high so we've kept the cold climate 4 feet and added the hot climate 9 feet. I had hoped that those Administrators more intimately involved with the teas would correct these anomalies.

I assume the sport, 1902 'Peace', would grow to similar size. I notice the description page for that one doesn't currently give a size at all.

Several tea roses "ball" and won't open properly in the spring-time here in humid Houston (Rosette Delizy, Amazone, Mrs. Dudley Cross, Niles Cochet). Does G. Nabonnand have a problem with balling in humid weather? Please let me know, thanks!

I have had G. Nabonnand growing in partial shade for about a year. I got it from the Antique Rose Emporium, so it started out as a larger plant. it is now about 3.5 feet tall and blooms in regular cycles. I have never had any problems with the blooms balling, nor have the thrips been a problem, even though they were quite bad on some of my other varieties this year

Is Gilbert Nabonnand disease resistant, blooms often and what situation does it like to grow?
Will it grow along a 4ft fence in full sun?

Yes, most definitely. Gilbert Nabonnand is very healthy, and blooms, blooms, blooms. It has a nice, fresh fragrance as well. And yes, It should do well in full sun along a 4 foot fence. It is a great thornless rose.
