Sunset Celebration is a joy to grow. Soft Apricot blooms come in regular intervals. It does very well in a vase. I've not had any trouble with disease, and it has proven itself zone 6a hardy

My now 4-year old Sunset Celebration is very marginal at best. The bush just doesn't seem vigorous enough and the blooms are rather small and non-descript. Foliage is very sparsely distributed an canes are thorny devils. Definitely not one of my better roses and may get shovel pruned soon.
From most peoples perspective, this is a good growing and blooming rose. I wonder if I got a dud bush or it needs to be moved?? It is planted on the east side of my house so it gets morning sun for a minimum 7 hours daily.
Any suggestions??

My Sunset Celebration was in full afternoon sun, perhaps you should move the rose and see if it improves. It is entirely possible you have a weak bush. The only way to know is to move it and see if it does better. I'm sorry it's not florishing for you.
