I chose to grow this rose b/c I'd read it was shade tolerant. I have 2 growing along fence line in mostly bright shade, except for 2 hours of late afternoon sun. Have not fuzzed much with them -.perhaps if I had they'd produce more flowers. But I am very happy with its performance despite the little care it receives. Recommend.
