Always defoliates completely during the season.
Every year some canes die, but every year new-ones come.

I'm glad it generates new canes for you. I tried this and nasty old Roger Lambelin years ago. Both were addicted to every fungal issue that came along in the mid desert. And, neither wanted to push new growth, no matter what I did or didn't do for them. They both became "mulch".

Thanks, Kim!
For now, it can stay where it is/as it is. Maybe it will turn into mulch another season.
It behaves a little bit better, when the weather isn't as erratic as it behaved this season...
And it benefits from a regular spray with sulfur and or silicium.(water-glass/sodium-silicate or Equisetum-tea or liquid manure made of Equisetum)

Thanks, Jay Jay, you're welcome! I guess you're more willing to spray because your climate requires it to be able to grow most roses. Where I grew them, many didn't require spraying, so I didn't spray, period. Those demanding it didn't hang around long. This new climate requires it much more than the old and I'm still refusing to spray, making selection more of an issue, but it is, so far, worth the effort. I hope all is good with you and yours!

Saw this rose in full bloom @ Huntington Gardens outside of Pasadena this week and the smell was moderate to strong Mr Lincoln. The flowers were a little smaller than I expected but the bush was not all that big either.

I'm in SW Missouri, zone 6, and have one from Pickering grafted onto multiflora. In its second spring it put out about a dozen gorgeous blooms and about half a dozen canes shot up to 5 feet. Very little blackspot in my no-spray garden. I didn't amend the hole when I planted.

This winter it got down to 10 below so will update later this spring.

Update: Lost all but a couple of canes, but many more grew over the season.

Update spring 2012: Very mild winter and all canes survived. I've decided this rose is borderline tender in my zone 6 garden but worth it.
