Does best in part shade. Actually tolerates a lot of shadow and pressure by neighbouring high bushes like hazel. Keeps the golden colour of her flowers best in part shade and has a good second flush in autumn.

To take off, when planted on a shady spot, this rose needs some time. But when maturing, I must admit, that the colour is staying perfect for days in the (partial) shade.

My Maigold bush is on a rather northern fence wall (2 metres/6-7feet tall) receives sun above that, around half a day.
True that it holds colour and flower in general better because of this but the plant itself doesn't really like it, gives its best above the fence - thank god it's around 4 metres/12-13feet tall.
Looks pretty amazing in Spring - one of the first ones to flower, and probably the strongest scent among all my bigger bushes, much stronger than Mme Isaac Pereire that i can only smell when smelling the flower itself.
Sadly Maigold repeats only occasionally.

I agree, it seems to detest shade to thrive.

I have only seen this rose in photos, and not personally grown it. What characteristics would distinguish this from pure Rosa multiflora? From the blooms and leaf stipules it looks superficially similar, but I presume that there are some characteristics that clearly separate them. Any thoughts from those who have personal experience with the rose?

Continuous bloom from spring till first frost. Thorny stems. Stems are strong, so the rose can form a high bush up to 10 feet. Healthy darkish foliage. No mildew or blackspot. Non invasive. No suckering. No low lying branches on the ground that may root. Flowers slightly larger and slightly more filled than multiflora.

This seems to be a drawing of the wrong rose, not acicularis.

Am I right to assume this roots easily? Also, could it do well in a large pot?

At the moment I have this rose in a pot on my balcony. But I somehow doubt that it will be happy in a pot for too many years. But then, it is always worth trying out things. It bloomed very well this spring. See photo under William III. I realize you are living in Mexico in a completely different climate. I wonder if roses like Gloria Dei (Peace) wouldn't do very well in hot climate. Gloria Dei was bred in Spain. Mutabilis (the Butterfly Rose from China) or Plaisanterie would also be worth trying. All have interesting flowers in their own way.I had Mutabilis for a few years and then came a cold winter it was gone. You can start them in a small pot and increase the size every two years or so, ending up with a 60-80 cm high pot. Usually it is not necessary nor good to start them in too large a pot.

Ah, I read this at the time it was posted but I forgot to write something back! I just wanted to say thank you! and that William III looks really nice in that pot! Love the tiny leaves, though the prickles look quite scary!
I had considered trying Plaisanterie and Mutabilis, but I read they would get way too big for a pot. My idea was to have something that I could use as a personal rootstock and that also doubled as an interest in a pot, I specially liked Morletti because of the mentions of thornlessness and fall colour. If it can stand being in a pot for a few years I think that's good enough. But I haven't found any info on its potential as stock...
Thanks again!
