I bought this rose and have it growing here at my downtown Hamilton, Ontario home. The blooms are pretty but my plant has had issues with sawfly larvae back in the summer. The larvae are easy to kill with handpicking. I have it in moist clay soil mixed with compost located in full sun. It is just a matter of training the plant on how to climb over a fence..... for me.

Wish I knew what a challenge this rose would bring me before I got it. It is a slow grower, fungus and black spot magnet needs tending to more often than my 9 month old. The blooms are pretty but not worth the stress.
