Does anyone know if this rose would do well in a large pot? Thanks.

Unless you live in cold climate, I think this is way too large and vigorous for a pot. But I could be wrong -- with proper pruning, and a REALLY big pot, it could work.

I have EVS planted in a really big pot since ca. February, and it's doing great. By big, I mean ca. 18" in diameter. There is an EVS across the street trained over an arch and it's huge, but this one is happy enough and the pot buys me time for a year or two while I figure out the backyard.

I live in Houston where the sun is very strong, and I have Oklahoma planted in a pot under the outer branches of an Oak tree. It gets maybe 3-4 hours of sun a day, and it still blooms!!! Today I cut a lovely long stemmed beauty and it is in a vase on my kitchen counter. Who knew this rose was shade tolerant too??? Wow.

I've seen Moonlight growing in southern England grown in part shade doing very well in both June and August.

It is susceptible to powdery mildew in the shade positions

My Mrs. B.R. Cant has grown to over 10 ft. tall by 10 ft. wide also. When I planted it, the spot seemed large enough. Now - whenever my family mows the yard they get stuck with 1/2 inch thorns that rip their clothes and hurt like the dickens! I was impressed by the picture of Devoniensis (posted by Jeri & Clay Jennings) that apparently had been pruned into a tree. Today I finished pruning Mrs. B.R. Cant into a 10 ft. tall, 2-trunk tree. I'll keep you posted on what develops. It is very pretty - the blossoms hang down - just lovely.

Do you have a picture of this bush now that it has been many years since pruning it?
