Does this rose appear to resemble a climber to anyone? Suddenly in the last couple of years this rose has grown taller with thinner ends to the canes, which lean, and sprout many flower buds on the laterals. I'm not sure if this is typical for this rose (it wasn't until recently) or if I now have a climbing sport. If the canes weren't leaning over, they would be a good seven feet tall.

I've had a grafted CFT from Palatine for 2 years now and its growth habit is the same as you described.
Very long canes that get weighed down at the ends.

Caramel Fairy Tale survived a tough winter here as a band - we are a dry zone 5. So I'd say it's hardy. Growing vigorously now.

"Origin and Breeding Controlled pollination: seed parent ‘Korruge’ syn Rugelda x pollen parent (‘Westerland’ x seedling). The seed parent is characterised by light yellow flower colour and petal margins with reddish tinge. The pollen parent is a breeding selection in breeder’s private collection. In spring/summer pollen from ‘Westerland’ x seedling was applied to a flower of ‘Korruge’ syn Rugelda."

Well, first of all if a plant is available from Palatine there is no reason on the earth to get it from Hortico.
Now, as to Caramel Antike and Caramel Fairy tale. I happen to have both. The HT Caramel Antike does not do that well in my garden, gets canker and dies back often but the few blooms I got were very beautiful; however I expected more of a rose that is supposed to be a florist rose. The floribunda Fairy tale, on the other hand is spectacular. I garden in zone 8, so the measurement by Kordes does not apply. This rose is 8 or 9 feet tall in my garden and about 7' wide and covered with huge blooms from top to bottom; the buds are rusty red, open into caramel and finish in creamy apricot yellow. Gorgeous! It has spotless foliage that is rare in the humid east coast. It even has some scent. I highly recommend it.

Caramel Fairytale sounds like the better garden rose. I notice from your profile that you are in the USA. It would be helpful to know where, aside from your USDA climate zone. It would help (me at least) put your growing experiences in better context.

Sorry for not mentioning that I garden in the very humid coastal east NC, zone 8. Blackspot and botrytis rule here, so I am very grateful for every rose that above that would not be touched by these fungal curses.

Thanks for filling in the picture. My father's family came from North Carolina, most of them settling in and around Rocky Mount. My uncle Worth, however, lived in Elizabeth City and also had a place in Nags Head. I have many happy memories, though now rather dim, of visiting there as a child. The beach was wonderful, and the fishing was amazing. I remember most the heat and humidity -- something a child growing up in San Francisco doesn't experience ever. It felt like "a jungle" to me as a child. It must present challenges for growing roses, especially with blackspot. I hadn't thought of botrytis! Good luck with your roses.
