I just received my bare root Vavoom plants. I'm planning a boarder with roses, but am having a difficult time finding information on how tall and wide Vavoom plants get. Does anyone have a Vavoom rose that is greater than 2 years old who can tell me what size these grow? I'd like to plant them with white Iceberg roses (varying from white to orange), but am concerned the Vavoom will look too small next to the white Iceberg. Please advise. Thanks!
