It is a lot prettier and more dramatic, in person, than Rhapsody in Blue or Night Owl. I think it is a better grower, too. When in bloom, I think it is even more dramatic than Purple Splash, despite its stripes, because the blooms are highly present and pleasing. The plant seems nice, too, with the bristles smelling like Westerland's bristles, which I find kind of unique for a modern mauve rose.

Home Depo had a few, very nice plants of this. Wished I had saved them. They set hips well too. I think it is worth looking into: http://www.rosebreeders.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=55260&sid=b23c5bb6c8367e4459075f9ccb1df7e5

I already have seedlings from it ^_^ I have "kept" seedlings of Heart n Soul, too.

Are you growing it as a climber or as a shrub?

I moved on from it as I have a superior seedling from it. When I had it, I whacked it down to the ground each winter and treated it as a free-standing shrub.

Thanks, Michael. How big did it get each year treated that way, and did it seem worth the trouble of doing so compared to growing commercially available non-climber alternatives? I find the flower color and form quite attractive in photos, more so than the competitors that I have seen, but I don't have a spot for it as a climber.

I just got mine and am thinking of planting it in a large pot with lav./red purple striped Clematis 'Paulie', white Gladiolus 'Alaska' and a deep electric blue anemone. The colors seem to work surprisingly. Any thoughts? Yours is just delicious looking!

Sounds very good, but may I ask you. How big is your planter?

Container interior is 15" across & 25" deep. After measuring, I think the Anemone is too much. The depth gives the rose roots plenty of room, I would only use 3 bulbs and the clematis should have sufficient room since it is not twining and only gets to be 4-6' itself.

I am afraid 15" is barely enough just for a rose. Clematis with time will have huge root system. Can your planned 'arrangement' be planted in the ground?
