I had a very woody, tired plant and it responded well to a severe regeneration pruning.

Can anyone tell me how much support this rose requires? Can it be grown as a very tall shrub or is it too procumbent in nature for that?

If you don't support it, it becomes a very wide, mounding shrub

This looks like a gorgeous rose, and obviously does well in cold conditions., but I am wondering how it does in heat? We are in an inland valley in California where summer temps are often above 90. Thanks!

I had Rhode Island Red in Minnesota and took it with me when we moved back to Georgia. It has done fine in the heat and humidity so far (three years). It appreciates afternoon shade, though. The bright, hot sun here tends to fry the edges of many deep red flowers.

Listing should be melded with 'Rhode Island Red'?
