We purchased this from a local nursery, it had very few roots going into the hottest summer on record. It lost all of it's leaves and produced hips on the few canes that did bloom earlier in the spring. By fall, it had releafed, but no new blooms, and it's round hips changed from orange to red-orange.

May 23, 2012: This is not a happy rose, again. Covered with blackspot, it's dropping leaves, I have this in light shade since it is a dark color, but I have another rose "Shockwave" that looks the same. West Coast roses are not for our area.

April 2, 2013 The only green is probably the rootstock the rose was grafted onto, that is if Weeks Roses grafts their roses. This is sad, I wanted to have a nice striped climbing rose.

Apl 2011 ~ SummerWinds Garden Center in SF Bay Area has 'PURPLE SPLASH' for $37 with a discount of << 20% off on all roses until May 5th >>. ' PS ' was full of buds & cheerful flowers: white eye & yellow stamens. It has a fruited scent, which the Bees really liked! PS resembles 'FOURTH of JULY' in every way except it's purple, where the 4th is cherry in color.

Does anyone know how hardy this is or have any experience growing it in a container? Thanks

It's a fairly rambunctuous climber here. Seven to nine feet tall in one growing season.

It's pretty hardy. It survived a couple days of below zero temperatures here.
