Am I right to assume this roots easily? Also, could it do well in a large pot?

At the moment I have this rose in a pot on my balcony. But I somehow doubt that it will be happy in a pot for too many years. But then, it is always worth trying out things. It bloomed very well this spring. See photo under William III. I realize you are living in Mexico in a completely different climate. I wonder if roses like Gloria Dei (Peace) wouldn't do very well in hot climate. Gloria Dei was bred in Spain. Mutabilis (the Butterfly Rose from China) or Plaisanterie would also be worth trying. All have interesting flowers in their own way.I had Mutabilis for a few years and then came a cold winter it was gone. You can start them in a small pot and increase the size every two years or so, ending up with a 60-80 cm high pot. Usually it is not necessary nor good to start them in too large a pot.

Ah, I read this at the time it was posted but I forgot to write something back! I just wanted to say thank you! and that William III looks really nice in that pot! Love the tiny leaves, though the prickles look quite scary!
I had considered trying Plaisanterie and Mutabilis, but I read they would get way too big for a pot. My idea was to have something that I could use as a personal rootstock and that also doubled as an interest in a pot, I specially liked Morletti because of the mentions of thornlessness and fall colour. If it can stand being in a pot for a few years I think that's good enough. But I haven't found any info on its potential as stock...
Thanks again!

This rose has excellent, colorful fall foliage- mine has leaves that have turned bright yellow-orange, and the stems have turned a crimson-red color. It constantly sends out new basal shoots, and even as the leaves turn on my plant it is still budding from the base. The flowers are of medium size, and lightly double, with a light fragrance.
As for breeding, this rose doesn't seem very willing to cooperate in either direction, as a seed or pollen parent. Hips don't set well and drop off prematurely, and the flowers are stingy with pollen.
A few hips appeared to set in 2016; it remains to be seen what will become of this.

Mine had a small flush after the first big bloom. Impressive with the flowers all along the branches.
