This is a beautiful rose and many people have provided wonderful close-up photographs of its flower.  Could anybody post some photographs of the full plant?

Is Compassion shade tolerant?
Reply #1 of 1 posted 13 DEC 04 by Lyn G
Dear C. Jackson,

If you click on the name of the rose above your question, you will be taken directly to the rose page for 'Compassion' in the HelpMeFind database. We have recently enhanced the information available about each rose as to petal form and plant habit. It will take a while to enter addional information regarding all of the roses in the database to provide the new information, but on the rose page for 'Compassion', you can see the number of petals in the bloom of this rose. Generally, roses with a high petal count like 'Compassion' will not bloom well or the blooms will not fully open in shady conditons.

For the most part, roses simply do not do well in shade as they are sun lovers. They may be able to survive in semi-shade, but that does not mean that they will perform their best. Many climbers will climb up through trees and such to reach for the sun and then bloom like mad. If that is your goal, I would suggest using a climber with fewer petals in the bloom as they do tolerate shade conditions better.

With Regards,

Lyn Griffith

What can I do to make my Rose Compassion flower lower down? It only flowers at the very top of the plant which is grown on an eight foot high trellis.

Training the canes horizontally is what allows the rose to produce blooms all along the length of the canes. If you don't do this, the rose will only produce blooms at the ends.
