Someone that has Leander told me that she's thornless, but nothing is said about that here. Can anyone confirm this? Also, is there a climbing version of Leander, or can she
be a climber OR a shrub? Thanks for any answers...! She's certainly a beauty, and with good fragrance, one I'm definitely considering adding to our rose collection.

Leander has thorns, though not a lot. Mostly big, easy to see thorns, no prickles. It has been a good, solid rose for me.

Leander has been a stand out performer since her first season in my garden.  I've experinced a small amount of black spot on the lower leaves, containable by pulling offending leaflets.  After a Winter which most of the roses lost all of their old wood, Leander had no such difficulties. For a time it was the only rose you could see in that bed. It is a continuous bloomer, who's blooms are long lasting in the garden or in a vase.

Wendy, when you say "it's a continuous bloomer" what does it mean exactly?, which months blooms it, all the season?

I'm really interested in this question, I'm waitng for your answer.

For me Leander has very little time without blooms.  It has at least three roses blooming and as many as twenty depending on the weather.  Quite simply it is nearly always has flowers during the growing season.

Many roses bloom in flushes. They put out a wonderful display, then regenerate for another grand bloom. Leaving a bare bush in between, Leander doesn't do that.

Thank you for your answer, I've heard molt differents opinions about its bloom habit . Some people says it only blooms once, and other people says it occasional repeats .

You're welcome. Weather and location can make a big difference in the performance of a rose, which is why I mentioned, "For me".  I would encourage you to give Leander a shot.
