While this rose may benefit from some shade in a relentlessly sunny clime, it did terribly with only Eastern exposure and afternoon shade from all sides in my Zone 6 loamy base clay. It is prone to BS here even in full sun, but it's tolerable. This rose is definitely better grown as a climber as its canes are lax. In any case, this allows the gorgeous, fragrant flowers to be seen up close. It was completely cane hardy at the limits of a Z6 winter with -7F for multiple nights and days in the single digits.

Your patent link to Falstaff is totally incorrect, it is actually a patent for "....Anthurium plant named `Cherry Red`...."

Please correct this.

My one-year old Falstaff gets powdery mildew here in Australia and there are 2 canes that flop down due to the weight of the blooms, making the bush look quite messy. Regardless of this, the blooms does look VERY beautiful (small, nicely cupped with folded petals inside).

I have seen a much healthier, matured-looking, and upright Falstaff at a Garden nursery. Perhaps mine is still young; I do intend to buy another Falstaff at a different nursery next year for comparison and also for the blooms.

Classic Austin red.
Beautiful colour and form.
It has sent up strong upright stems which are suitable for either pegging down or training as a pillar rose.
Excellent health and vigour.
