I planted this miniature climber on a hillside in full sun. I was told the first year she would be sort of quiet, the second year she would start to grow and the third year she'd put on a show; that is exactly what happened. By the third year this was the most beautiful rose in my garden. This rose had 12 ft. canes, easily. I gave it plenty of room when I planted it and just let it grow. I didn't prune except to take out older canes occasionally. The canes arched down the hill with masses of double, baby-pink roses marching along the canes. I had no trouble with black spot or powdery mildew. I built a new home recently and will be planting another Jeanne La Joie as soon as I can get my hands on one.

Probably the finest climbing miniature rose ever hybridized. Easily grows to 10 feet or more in height, and in the spring it is literally buried under a mass of light pink, fully double flowers. Subesquent bloom is sparser but still impressive. Very winter-hardy, although there might be some cane dieback in the most severe weather. I've seen no disease problems in my garden. The plant is slow to establish itself; the first summer you plant it, it will just seem to sit there doing nothing. Be patient; it's growing roots! The second summer will show some modest cane growth. The third summer - jump out of its way, or you'll be in danger of being overrun. If you want an easy-care, hardy climbing rose, you won't be disappointed with this one.
