I suspect this should be KORpompan

Bred by Ford?

it is listed as growing at the Scott Arboretum of Swarthmore College 500 College Avenue, Swarthmore, PA 19081.
I haven't heard of John Ford in New Zealand breeding a rose with this code name and HelpMeFind is fairly up-to-date with the New Zealand roses. I believe the Scott Arboretum may well grow the 2005 Kordes rose 'Pomponella' KORpompan and their listing of FORpompan is a simple typo.

This is possible, Patricia, they have other Kordes Roses listed with their breeder codes. In that case the listing should be merged into KORpompan.

This rose looks a lot like the (sold as) Gräfin Esterhazy that is supposed to be of Geschwind.

I'm in a soggy Zone 8 (Vancouver, Canada) and from year one this rose has been vigorous beyond belief. After four years the only thing that seems to stop it from growing taller is that at 8 ft (2.4m) I just ruthlessly prune it in spring. The pictures I've included over the last couple of years show it successfully holding its own midst an equally vigorous Warsaw Nike clematis. (Note the photo showing the canes in early spring. It gives a idea how this rose branches) It is continuing to throw out aggressive basal breaks that have to be roped in, and then the apex explodes with a witches broom of small and medium branches that bear huge (weighty) trusses of blooms. Support is absolutely necessary or the canes will break off. The result is a tough-as-nails yet pretty climber that seems impossible to discourage. Deadheading is easy, just wait till a whole spray is done with and cut off way back to the original prune joint if needed. My suggestion if you want a bulletproof climber that can take abuse is to try this one but give it a lot of tough love when pruning time comes along or it will take over.

If Raubritter is too lax and sprawling for your taste, this is the plant for you. Be advised, however, that in my zone 5 garden it is much taller than the 32" stated on HMF, more like 48" (with pruning). I've had to move it toward the back of the border. Better to think of it as a 5 ft tall by 4 ft wide plant.
