To my knowledge this rose is essentially once blooming. I don't know if it might offer some repeat when it becomes mature or for those in certain favored climates.

Now that you've had this rose for approx. 2 more years, have you noticed in your own garden if those rose repeats after the once-blooming period is over? Also - for how many weeks did it bloom and did you have to dead-head or did the petals fall off on their own? Thanks!

HI Carlene, I no longer grow 'Evergreen Gene', so I can't give you much further information.

My space here is limited. I gave propagation materials to both Roses Unlimited and Cool roses then let my specimen go.

As I remember the blossoms shed of their on accord. This cultivar gets large and needs to be given support and space to show it's self.

I still grow it. It's easily 25 feet. And it is a once bloomer in San Diego. It grows up through the top of my 20 foot Mermaid and keeps on trucking.

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
