Hi Again!
I can't find any information about the repeat on this rose. Neither Hortico nor HMF say anything about it, and you are the only one posting pics of this rose. It looks lovely, does it repeat for you, Beth?

I am not the person that you asked about this rose, but I am going to say that I think it probably blooms repeatedly through the season. All of my once-bloomers got hit by the freeze in April and did not bloom this year, but my repeat bloomers are now blooming along with The Nightwatch, so my guess is that it repeats through the season.

Thank you for taking time to reply to my question. This looks like a lovely and unusual rose, but it is nice to find out a bit about a rose before ordering.

The Nightwatch is constantly in bloom.

I'm sure this rose is not a blessing. Unfortunately, it's a bit of a pest.

Until someone breeds "groundcover" roses which
- are thornless,
- don't root down (which excludes pretty well any with wichurana ancestry),
- suppress weeds (which in my climate means they have to be evergreen)
- and don't need deadheading (even with a golfclub) to keep them looking tolerable,
I'll use groundcovers which aren't roses.

great goals!

There's nothing worse than trying to weed amongst stems of "ground cover" roses that aren't actually effective enough to suppress the weeds.
Interesting that two white flowered species should make a hybrid that is pink.

I like my 'Green Snake', with its' shiny foliage. I could wish for prettier flowers, but on the whole I am quite satisfied with it. Maybe it is better in cooler climates. I find it does quite well in part shade and the weeds are not to difficult to remove.

I think the first picture of this rose is incorrect, and the other two are correct. I have never seen a New Year rose with a striped petal. Is it possible this is the another rose? I've only seen the solid orange color.

All three are photos of the same plant.

Does anyone know how hardy this is or have any experience growing it in a container? Thanks

It's a fairly rambunctuous climber here. Seven to nine feet tall in one growing season.

It's pretty hardy. It survived a couple days of below zero temperatures here.
