I have Erfurt, its kid, and I have never seen blackspot on it in its... like 15 yrs of life here. It seems to passed on nice fragrance, too. Possibly a better choice for gardens.

does anybody here grow the climbing rose 'Réveil dijonnais'? On the net, I found rather different informations, as far as maximum height, growth speed and disease resistance are concerned -would be wonderful, to hear something about that by somebody, who knows the plant from personal gardening experience! (I'll take the risk with that rose anyhow, because it fits perfectly in one particular part of my garden; but it's good to know what you are doing...)

For better comparison: I live in Germany, in European Climate Zone 7-8 (probably comparible to USDA-Zone 6-7), in a rather mild region, where grapes are grown. The place for the climber is a wall, Southwest, with sun, wind and rain (a lot of all of that). To those, who know 'Réveil dijonnais': Do you think this plant can do well there?

Thanks for answering and many greetings!

I grow this rose in Canada where the climate is similar to yours. It grows to about 9 feet as a climber but it better as a 6 foot shrub. In the PNW, where I garden, it is very prone to blackspot. So prone that it defoliates totally in the early summer. The canes are pliable and so without help it will tend to bend over. The flowers are semi single with a golden yellow center and the petal edges are banded in red. I will be digging this rose out this year as it has one bloom and then a few scattered flowers through the summer. The rose is not happy in my wet weather which I get a lot of. It is a rose that would do much better if it were grown in rich soil and well fertilized.
