Can someone who has grown both roses compare this rose to Munstead Wood please? Just wondering if I really 'need' both!

2000 was a weak grower for me. Munstead was not.

Hi Robert, thanks so much, that is interesting. Munstead Wood does have healthy thick stems for me.

Health and vigor depend on many variables, like climate, choice of rootstock, and or growing own-root.

2000 was a better grower than Austin's original, 'William Shakespeare', but marketed over twenty years ago.

Austin is constantly working to improve introductions.

In my hot humid climate Munstead Wood looks better, also Falstaff. William S.2000 suffers from blackspot every summer. I would say the description of very disease resistant is incorrect as the rose is very susceptible to black spot

Is this rose better than Reve d'or?
repeat flowering?

I consider this an excellent landscape rose for a suitable climate. The blooms are tiny but come in huge clusters and they look well against the healthy green foliage. For me, this was an absolutely no care rose. Every once in a while I would cut off the big pannicles of old flowers because I tend to get obsessive about dead heading.

I have not grown 'Reve d'Or'. It does have a much more spectacular flower than Aimee.

I like Reve d'Or better; the flowers have both a better color and more fragrance. And fewer thorns!
Alister Stella blooms fade a lot in the intense heat of coastal SE Virginia.

In my hot humid climate the rose is very vigorous and very fragrant. Little re-flowering and takes the black spot. Full sun exposure.

This rose in my warm humid climate blooms well and is healthy in shade or partial shade. Absolutely to avoid direct sun or the flowers burn out in a short time and the plant suffers!
