So I planted this 18 months ago, and it has grown into a monster plant. It has produced flowers continuously throughout the season, but there is a small black beetle that loves these flowers, out of all my roses, this is the only one they go for. Also the flowers get scorched by the sun in summer and turn into mushy balls of slime in the rain. Therefore I have decided to get rid of mine. Otherwise this Rose is super healthy and vigorous.
