Baa - I cannot believe you don't like roses. I have to ask you why not? I am so curious... :-)
Sorry cazique didn't mean to go off thread here. Your rose certainly does not look like a strong grower. I grew a rose called Louise Odier back home and she was similarly weak growing. Would love to help but think I am stumped!! :-)
I get sick of seeing them all the time, same old planting schemes with the same old varieties. Full of pests and diseases, thorns, nasty sprawling habits, flowers for all of 4 weeks a year, flowers go brown and hang limply and a lot of hard work for such a short show. Taking up valuable space for more interesting plants, if this isn't enough I'm sure I can come up with more.
We do have roses but Mom bought all but one of them, my purchase was a pure curiosity, Rosa viridiflora with bright lime green flowers. Not everyones taste but suitably garish for a rose.
I'll have to take a decent picture of it one of these days.
