So far, so good!Review by Dennis
I planted 2 of these last year in late spring along two metal trellises on either side of the entrance to my front porch. The location is facing South and gets sun All Day.

I was surprised they were able to establish their root system and still have time to put on 10-15 pretty red roses on each plant. (The roses seemed to stay pretty for a Long Time, too!)

I 'only' gave it 4 stars initially, not because I'm not well-pleased with them, but because This Year should tell just how prolific they really are. I am looking forward to continued progress! (Posted on 3/21/2017)
Shade tolerant?Review by Laura
Bought two of these to be climbers. Very slow growth for both. Wondering how many hours of sun per day they need. Finally, year 2, they have buds showing color. One is still just over a foot tall. Neighboring David Austin roses are newer, much larger and more robust. Maybe they don't like marine influence! (Posted on 5/24/2016)
great beauty!Review by alice
I am living in the City of Roses--Portland,'OR .I've had this rose in a big pot for three years now.The second year it produced lots of beautiful big red blooms. This year,so far I have counted six new buds,I cut it way back in the early spring and it's doing fine in its new home.Same pot,fertilized,good soil,water from nature and mulched;cross fingers.

it is not shade tolerantReview by nataliya
two years and still rather small. The first year it did bloom several times, good size flowers, pretty red... Last summer the 15" "bush" did not add any volume and rather seamed even smaller. So I replanted it in the sunny part of my garden later in the fall. Will update in the spring-summer 2015. (Posted on 2/20/2015)
